"I have worked in various media since I was a child. In 2018, however, I began focusing exclusively on collage: painted paper, found paper, and mixed media. Since then my collages have been in numerous exhibits.
For the Summer Musings exhibit, I selected four pieces.
Japanesque #7, from my recent Japanesque Series, uses both painted and found paper. The found paper comes from multiple prints I found in a battered old book of Japanese prints from the 18th and 19th centuries.
By the Sea also uses both painted and found paper, including Chiyogami paper and vintage wallpaper.
Sunset uses only paper I painted. It is part of my recent series using only the complementary colors orange and blue.
Splash uses paper I painted and one piece of found paper. It is part of my ongoing midcentury modern art inspired collage series.
