Mixed Media, Booth 939

Stories, legends, dreams and the surrealist worlds they evoke have always been a part of the human experience; a way for us to make sense of our surroundings and to explain away some of our fears.  As a child these were the things that most captured my imagination and seem to have woven themselves into the fabric of my personality.  I am a collector at heart, constantly collecting bits of ideas and found images, all with their own stories to tell.  By combining these in my collage/painting pieces, they form new narratives and meanings. I live in Toronto and work in a garage studio where I sometimes allow my husband, three children and little black dog, Frida, to visit.
