"I tell stories about family as a way to create an imaginative sanctuary for the viewer. My aim is to connect you to people neither you nor I can reach personally: a relative who fought in the Civil War, for example, or an intriguing stranger from a far-off place.

I make collage portraits on birch board, assemblages in upcycled cigar boxes and altered books in which I remix the original narratives. Often I paint over photocopies of a subject's photograph, then layer elements upon and around the subject to tell an embellished story.

Ultimately, I believe by focusing attention on a chronicle that once was known only within a family or small group, the story's importance is elevated and preserved for others to experience."
