Yes, It's Paper!
You probably have a collection of some kind—dolls, spoons, matchbooks. I collect paper. Not ordinary paper like you run through your home printer. I collect sheet music, sandwich wrappers, technical drawings, hand written letters - anything with interesting text or patterns. I then paint and texture these found papers and use them in my collages. Take a closer look. You might find a piece of poetry or a crossword puzzle hiding in plain sight.
If you would like to see my work up close and personal or if you would like to learn how to create collages yourself, sign up for my newsletter below to receive notifications of art festivals I’m attending and workshops I’m teaching.
