In the past ten years,

as a way to exercise my creative energies in a different direction, I started making collages. I had amassed a huge stack of handmade papers, using cotton, linen and natural recycled fibers such as straw and leaves. I also had left-overs from many digital printing projects, where the edges that had been trimmed off were sitting there screaming for attention.


These collages represent two collections, one is actual glued papers, thus collage, and the second are "digital" collages, using the layers in Photoshop to overlap and interact a variety of imagery. These digital images came out of a massive project investigating the imagery of ancient written materials, from papyrus and parchment to ancient record on clay.
