“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.” – Pablo Picasso

Art ofCollage

My collages begin with scraps of paper that I’ve selected from my files. Colors and textures that work together. Then I begin to add other elements that play on the theme. An old label, piece of broken jewelry, scrap of lace or photograph. I am often working on several collages simultaneously in my studio. When I’m not in my studio, I keep a collage sketchbook, where I create in-the-instant collages with bits of collected scraps left over from my studio projects. I’m always looking for those moments of time to create!
