My work is quirky and often political. Through a wide range of mediums and materials (collage, sewn text pieces and installations) I explore themes such as our out of control consumer society and clawing our way back from the fiscal cliff. The last few years have been very ripe times for me and my work! Witness: the Scarlet Letter "A" for Artist adorned with used Bandaids to symbolize the blood, sweat and tears that accompany making art. Or my series of Credit Card works that explore just what it means to have "good credit". Or sample my classic Financial Crisis Vocabulary collages. Too big to fail, indeed! At present, I am working on a new wall hanging called, "Sequestration: Make You Squeal Like a Pig". Enjoy.
