I use found papers from multiple sources to create a cohesive 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 they make new discoveries each time they look at their collage. That is my goal. It keeps viewers engaged and interested in the piece. I often ask myself, ‘What led me to this particular medium?’ As a child, I was fascinated by cool papers, stationery, stencils, embossed cards and unique text. My fascination with text led me to a position at a printing office in high school. I’m also drawn to the story of Steve Jobs and his love of calligraphy, which ultimately led us to all the creative fonts on our computers (and in magazines). I also enjoy the ‘Where’s Waldo’ challenge of finding hidden objects in a crowded space.
