Mixed Media 2D: Giclee print of original torn paper collage

40"h x 40"w


I use found papers from recycled magazines, newspapers, maps and labels to create a solid subject. The challenge is to add little nuances for the viewer to discover when moving in closer to the artwork. Many collectors have told me that they find new little pieces each time they look at their collage, and that is my goal. It keeps them engaged and interested in the art they have selected. ​ I often ask myself, 'What led me to this particular medium?' I remember that, as a child, I was fascinated by cool papers, stationery, stencils, embossed cards and unique text. I even worked in a printing office for a while. I'm drawn to the story of Steve Jobs and his love of calligraphy, which ultimately led us to all the wonderful fonts on our computers (and in magazines!) I also enjoy the 'Where's Waldo' task of finding objects in a cluttered space.
