I am a collector of vintage images, illustrations and a creator of collages. I collect old photos, postcards, comic books, images and illustrations from old and forgotten books and vintage ephemera. I started making collages with these materials and have found it rewarding and challenging. Collage (traditional and digital) lends itself to improvisation, spontaneity and the unexpected discovery. I begin with no final product in mind but put something down and respond to the materials, try to find images that resonate with each other. I have always been drawn to the surrealistic, the poetic image and the dreamlike with a sense of playfulness showing through occasionally, and I hope these qualities come through in my collages.
