Contemporary paper collages are made using combinations of torn and cut Washi, Mulberry, Lokta, Lacquered Yuzen, Marbled Italian and papers with natural plant inclusions. These papers cut, torn and layered on a wood or paper substrate. They sometimes include the use of alcohol markers, inks, watercolor, hand stitching and found objects. Collages are either mounted on wood cradles and sealed with acrylic or set in a black wood gallery frame; all are ready to hang. Textile Landscapes are created by using a mix of up-cycled fibers and yarns, such as sari silks, alpaca, cotton, wools and sometimes found objects. Each piece of fiber is carefully laid out into abstract landscapes and then stitched in place, adding more layers of fiber and stitching until I'm happy with the piece. The finished piece is mounted on a cradled board or framed and ready to hang.
