art making collage process

A collage is an assemblage that is flat.

I work from the first surface

Usually hand made paper

To the last

usually a stamp or sequin or painted gold leaf

Methodically

Placing

Rearranging

Pondering

many of my collages take years to ponder

waiting for the perfect tidbit to come along

from books

or magazines

or the street

then applying

some more arranging

then glues & mediums are applied

Sometimes drawing

or painting

sewing on embellishments

stamps usually happen last
