Cut paper collage and acrylic 

16" x 20"




"While new to Painted Paper Collage I find that many of the skills and habits that I have developed over my career as a ceramic artist come through in this work. Most of the time, I have no sense of direction but allow the materials to direct me. Amazing things happen when abstractly painted pieces of painted paper come together and begin to form a narrative. I often find myself falling in love with the brush or pallet knife strokes and marks that I make on the paper.”
