I have been having an awful lot of fun creating these tiny collages. I have some old playing cards that I sand and then adhere a paper napkin. Then a few collage bits are added and finally some words. I have an 80-year-old art book that I have been using. I randomly tear out a page and then scan it for the right words. Phrases jump off the page at me and I glue them down. I think looking for the right words is so much fun. Not sure why that tickles my fancy so well. Pictured above is the set I created yesterday. I have made three sets so far and can see myself doing this again and again.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
