I’m always interested in happy accidents and the 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?’.
I look down at my art studio floor and I find something new in what was left behind. 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.
