Dorothy Dreams of an America Gone

Most of my pieces are only 11×14 at the biggest. I have begun to branch out doing the occasional larger pieces. The main impetus behind this was wanting to leave my comfort zone. To always work in a manner in which one knows they will succeed is to risk lapsing into mere mannerism(s).

I have also started to delve into doing collage. It is a new medium for me but one which I already really enjoy. I take it as serious as the rest of my visual work. I go real old school, utilizing scissors and glue stick and photos which I took, eschewing any kind of Photoshop magic.

An appeal for me is that I can achieve the density which I prefer in my work along with a sort of open ended narrative.

This is my second piece
