Abstract Collage on Paper

An artists residency in Fiskars, Finland brought me to a new place with collage. While there, I used mixed media materials to explore landscape, a practice I continue to this day. Rather than the found images I gravitated towards in my youth, I now work with collage more abstractly. The use of color and choice of materials are combined to evoke the experience of not just seeing your surroundings, but feeling them, spending time there. The mark of the hand is important to me in all my artwork, and the act of meticulously cutting and then placing hundreds of tiny elements is my meditation.
