Winona Cookie was my imaginary friend when I was a kid. She looked just like my avatar. So while I'm snipping, gluing and painting, I'm channeling Maurice Sendak, Ed Gorey and Alphonse Mucha. My collages are often done on stretched gallery canvases that have been painted with acrylic. I construct my weird little scenarios, portraits and worlds from the vast and groaning collection of vintage photos and images that I obsessively collect from the internet and elsewhere. I add all manner of items from my studio: dresden trim, charms, watch gears, crystal gems, ribbons, bits of lace and vintage ephemera. Oftentimes, originals are interactive pieces with moving parts.
