Over the last ten years I have developed a body of work that I call "Figurative Collage." My works take on the quality of paintings combined with the properties of torn papers of all sorts and sources. The images are brought to life through a unique method of combining and intricately layering paper (using no paint embellishment whatsoever). I am literally painting with paper, tearing the colors and shapes and applying them as I would paint, to create an image, convey a thought, share a vision. Sharing and experimenting with techniques led to the creation of The Collage Lab and their first published art collection on Blurb.
