This year I have been enjoying making collages with scavenged pieces of paper and other paper painted with the specific intention of tearing and cutting it for the work. I don’t start with a particular image in mind. I find myself playing around until something emerges that strikes a chord for me. It is very time consuming in terms of making decisions and committing to a particular arrangement but it suits me as I grapple with a great loss.
