My collage works are in a constant state of flux with each papermaking session. Exposed and revealing I find myself at the mercy of the raw torn papers edge.  Visual and physical entries grow from self-discovery, through twists and turns. New compositions stem from the need to fine what is all possible with each element. Fragmented stories begin to link their way to the surface allowing a natural flow of chaos to nestle itself softly in the middle.  The shapes, colors and imagery become my characters of these abstract tales. They have me walking in rhythm to patterns of opportunities pretending I’ve solved the mystery of connectedness.
