THE COLLAGE PORTFOLIO

"The Artist's Secret" a mixed media collage / vintage papers, engravings, plastic templates, etc.

About the portfolio

The collage portfolio is the most recent of the six portfolios I have created. I made a few small pieces over the years, but it wasn't until I began trying to work in my new studio that I realized I was having difficulty  adjusting to the space I had reserved for drawing.  It simply wasn't fun any more; something was wrong! At that point, I decided to try something different. I had inherited most of my mother's studio and had also collected lots of miscellaneous "stuff"that I needed to sort - Voila! Collage!

"LIFE"S GIFTS - mixed media collage-found paper .paint,beeswax, vintage engravings

Materials for collage

I began working seriously with collage in 2016, and haven't stopped yet. The fun I was missing returned, and the work was exceptional.   The collection of materials I had amassed  - vintage papers, old engravings, wasp nest paper, watercolors,drawings, blueprints, theatre gels,  old paper samples,drafting templates- anything that would enhance the design I've used.

 "Birds & Beasts"    found papers, found vintage engravings , drawing, found target, wasp nest paper

Collect my 'Narrative 'Collages!

I call the collage I create "narrative" because they seem to tell a story.....the one I was thinking about may not be the same story you can discover in each work you see. This is a wonderful way to look at art! Each time you look , the story gets better......I think this is a major part of why we own works of art.                               Start a collection and see.....
