2D Mixed Media Works

These pieces were inspired by my admiration of artists like Joseph Cornell, Hannah Hoch,  and Kurt Schwitters. I accumulate old books, sheet music, postcards, sewing bits, costume jewelry, and other “junk,” and then I sit and think about how to juxtapose certain elements together to make a statement. Each piece usually contains some drawing, some painting, some printing or stamping, and lots of glue. Themes revolve around femininity, desire, communication (or lack thereof), birth, death, and regeneration. Yeah, I’m so deep… 😐
