My art began (and continues) as visual poetry, a natural offshoot of the experimental writing I had been doing since college. For many years I created image/text visuals in black and white, publishing pieces in small press magazines around the world and in three book-length compilations. In 2003 I began working in color, developing new methods and an even more hybrid style.. My color work is digital but is created following a unique and somewhat complex process, which may involve manipulation of found or recycled material, mono copy art and abstract scanography. Collage techniques are used to build master page constructions, which then go back into the computer for adjustment and final execution.
