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.
