I have been making collages for many years, although I probably started as soon as I had safety scissors in my hand as a small kid. I had a love for construction paper then and enjoyed cutting out make-believe scenes using some of my mother's catalogs and magazines. Little has changed since then, except now I use sharp scissors.
All of my work is cut and paste with no digital manipulation. I mainly use old papers and ephemera that I find at secondhand markets.
