Raised in a good catholic home in the SF Bay area. Educated in a catholic school where I colored outside the lines and a saint halos were always rainbows. I combine religion, art, and found objects to create new collage assemblages that contrast several influences to create new ways of expression and insights. By layering together completely different objects and inspirations, creating my artwork enables me to use my accumulation of thrift store finds combined with life experiences. This is a new direction for my artwork, the addition of found objects and 3d elements. My work at times reflects my personal experience as a schoolboy in parochial school. These three artworks, and my other collage assemblages, are all connected, and reflect struggles with my religion.
