In an effort to unhook my “Illustrator-brain” I turned to torn paper. After many years of working as a contract illustrator, I needed to take away identifiable imagery and all of the presuppositions connected to “issues” when creating my very own artwork.

Every new piece begins by diving straight into the colour and or feeling, with a wonderful dried flower or leaf. The work itself guides me. I belief myself to know what coloration or paper so as to add to every piece. I belief myself to know when every bit is completed.

The longer one lives with my torn paper items, the extra one sees. Your eye is consistently making new connections and patterns of motion.

My aim? Pleasure.
