The Collector provides the viewer with narrative elements to create a personal story existing between the art piece and the individual. Through the use of symbols and identifiable objects a unique dialogue may be created, resulting in an intimate relationship.

As the artist I develop the various visual elements, some traditional and some self-generated, which relate to a particular subject or idea. I then play with the objects in a design game to make visual relationships leading the viewer’s eye around the work. After the initial introduction, the viewer is invited to investigate the various visual clues to create the story held within. The observer is encouraged to make the story personal journey.

Living in the Western Hemisphere, one has the opportunity to enjoy multicultural influences: cultures from all over the world meet here and fuse into a rich and diverse society. Every person here has come from somewhere else. I reference stories, folklore and visual imagery from around the globe; my desire is for the art to reflect these influences and to celebrate them.


Review of work for inclusion in the 90th Annual Pasadena Society of Artist‘s Exhibition was completed over the past weekend and this piece has been selected to be included with 60 other works.

The show will run 2 December through 30 December. More information will be posted soon.
