I was recently asked to participate in an interview exchange, by Dyanna Dimick. You can check out her interview here

.How does my creative process work?
I love the process, the ritual of my studio time. For my assemblage work, I begin with the materials, vintage magazines, gouache, and Stonehenge paper. I search the magazines and collect people that speak to me, I cut them out with an Xacto knife, and paste them with matte medium. All the while I have been envisioning the overall composition. At this point I use the gouache to layer colors and shapes with a small Sable brush to build up the captured moment I have been working towards. How does my work differ from others in it's genre?
I consider myself as a painter, my training is in paint and the majority of these pieces are composed of paint. Currently, due to the nature of the incorporation of images from vintage magazines, I have found a lot of connections amongst the collage art world. What are you currently working on?
Currently I am working on a commission piece for a friend, so I am working on a few pieces that suit the parameters and options we discussed. I am also finishing up a few small and larger pieces. I am about ready to buy new materials and start a new series. Why do you do what you do?
It makes me happy! And I love to think about my next project.
Please check out my talented friends work, who will be answering the same questions, and passing along the interviews!
