Collages

I love to cut up beautiful pieces of paper and create images with them. I usually sit at my dining room table by myself with some coffee, layout whatever papers I have and start cutting and glueing. The way I collage is very intuitive, I respond to the colors and the shapes and see what emerges. I love to use paint samples from the hardware store, tissue paper, and vintage book pages. Below you can see some of my pieces in progress, some as they look finished in my sketchbook and some after I scan them and play with the colors in Photoshop.
