Costa Rica - works on paper
Inspired by the 2-D work I made earlier in the year at my residency in Fiskars, Finland, I decided to spend my residency at the Julia and David White Artists Colony in Ciudad Colon, Costa Rica working on paper. I brought colored vinyl and three different types of scissors and went for it. By the end of two weeks, I had over fifty small collages, inspired by music, rain forests, cloud forests, and conversations with my fellow residents.
Several works from this series are available for purchase.
In 2019, I finally returned to collage during a two week "rest-idency" at a remote cabin in the Sierras. Using hand-cut pieces of sign vinyl, I created more intricate works at a larger scale than I had explored in Costa Rica. Many of these new works are available for sale on this website.
More collage work made at an artist's residency at the Sou-Wester in March 2020. To see an artist's statement video I made about my large piece, click here.
I spent much of 2020 working on art as a way to cope with the pandemic isolation. The result is a series of 54 bird collages that I'll be selling this October to raise funds to make them into a playing card deck. I've been showing these works on my Instagram site (link at the bottom of page) as I finish them. There will be several live streaming events in October when you can watch me create these in real time. Details about available works are in my Current + Future Projects section.
