My collages are complex exercises in precision, detail, composition, colour, movement and a sense of joy and playfulness. I use predominantly vintage materials for their colour palette, line, paper quality and sense of nostalgia. Collages are their own medium, but I often see mine as drawings, paintings, and poetry utilizing paper and glue.
