I am honored to have my work selected for the de Young Open Exhibit.

My collages are meant to be intimate and thought provoking. They should evoke a peaceful, quiet and simultaneously compelling response from viewers. One often finds a humorous or unexpected element within the frame.

As a result of living in and traveling extensively throughout Europe, I am greatly influenced by the Dada, Bauhaus, and Wiener Werkstätte movements, as well as Russian Constructivism.  I like working with old material – pieces of paper from everyday life such as photographs, letters, and book pages.  I find pleasure in gathering old things to savor for later use.

Here is a quick YouTube spin around my studio.

Artist Bio

Smith was born in Seattle and spent 10 years of her childhood living in Germany. San Francisco is now her home. Armed with degrees in Design, Economics, and an MBA, doesn’t it seem fitting that she try her hand as an artist? After an extensive business career in the garment industry and then investment banking, her desire to balance the duality of her left and right brain inspired her to start her own art practice. A business owner since 1998, she splits her time between her art studio at Hunters Point Shipyard and her home office where she is a dealer and manufacturer of vintage and vintage-inspired wall décor.  In fact, it was remnants from the business that became her original collage materials. Smith loves to spend time visiting museums, galleries and flea markets.
