When you look at this collage, picture yourself standing at the edge of the forest looking in to see your friend leaping through the trees. She will soon join you by your side, relieved that both you of you are together and ready for the next part of the journey. This collage is from my Out of the Forest series.
I cut each of my paper pieces free hand. I have something in mind and look for papers that have the essence of what I would like to talk about. The patterns, textures, and colors of the papers sometimes give me new ideas or speak to me on how they would like to be shaped and cut. I usually arrange all of them first before I glue them on the paper but I am not precise when I do make the final placement.
