An artist out of Salem Massachusetts focusing on altered-book art and cut-paper illustrations. 

Currently experimenting with tissue paper. Animals are my main subject interest. In particular the chicken and the octopus. I am inspired by folk art, the Fauves, and whimsy. I take my whimsy very seriously. I am fascinated by the layering of colors of tissue paper. And the transparency, how you can create lines within lines or allow people to see under the surface of an object.


I’ve also been experimenting with altered-book art, finding old hardcover books people have abandoned and finding an abandoned board game to combine it with that will bring joy to people.
