I’ve always been interested in happy accidents. This works well with the modernist process of art making. Lately I’ve been using scraps, found objects, left overs and other byproducts of art making in my collages. I re-purpose the discarded elements. Look closely and you will see a tea bag wrapper next to a scrap of metallic tape or a note book end.
I don’t censor what goes on my paper. I think, ‘how can I make this work?’. Sometimes it’s a challenge.
I find something new in what was discarded. I love the unintentional. I think finding something is as exciting as creating something. I believe finding and seeing is creating. I want the beauty in left behind. Life is accepting chance and rolling with the randomness. For me, my art technique is an interesting metaphor for life.
