When I start a mixed media collage I rarely know what it is going to turn out to be. I work intuitively and without reference. I am interested in building up textures with my materials and creating a series of layers that reveal the history of each one’s application. Often a collage is painted over, scraped off and reapplied in a new form. The repeated constructing and destroying and recreating builds a rich surface. The pieces are often finished with details, sometimes whimsical, always with attention to the subtle beauty of the mark. I use watercolor paper, Thai and Yupo papers, tissue and rice paper with acrylics, inks, chalk and oil pastels, charcoal, colored pencil, oil paint and cold wax medium.
