My artwork has two focuses; mixed media collage and painting. 
2011 marked the 10th Anniversary of my work with maps.  I have always used old maps in my collages and incorporated map based ideas into my art.  In January of 2001 I experimented with a collage that only used maps.  The success of the experiment and the resulting piece changed the direction of my work. Much of the map work takes its inspiration from other traditional art forms using repetitive patterns, in particular quilts and other textiles

While I will continue to work with maps, I saw the 10th Anniversary as an occasion to add a new direction to my work.  The 2011 Project is the start of the next phase.  The project entailed creating a map of the year one day at a time.  The 2011 Project also had a strong autobiographical element as I explored various themes and influences in my life so far.  It also is a project where many of the pieces have included ephemera that I have been saving for many years — just waiting for the right moment when I would need them for a piece of art.

Newer examples of my work can be seen at including work inspired by the 2011 Project.

Some of my map pieces were featured in Elephant Magazine, Issue #7, July 2011.
