Based in: Saint Paul
I was born and raised in Minnesota. I have an associate arts degree in commercial art. I’ve lived and worked as an artist all of my adult life. I create everyday. I work as an art director.
My work is mostly based around my film collage series. Influenced by landscapes, architecture and graphic shapes. The collages are made out of pieces of film placed and taped onto paper. They are unique and very rare. They are made of film scraps created as a production artist on a stat camera. The film can shine like glass or look matted depending on the lighting. Film makes for a clean image, even through several layers.
I like movies, music and art and all are usually unusual. I prefer unusual people as well. I’m a wife and a mother and we have a teenage son.
