Artist Statement

grumbacher oil pastels2I have always been a collector.  I frequent estate sales and flea markets searching for anything old, unique, beautiful, or useful.  Handling a dusty relic connects me to someone unknown; the object functions as a time machine.  And the task of remaking old things inspires my artmaking process.

I like vintage design, typography, logos, and especially product packaging, and I am drawn to the bold compositions of Pop Art.  Technically, I employ translucency, layering, and texture in my work, often combining collage with paint and other materials.
