Art Work > Paper COLLAGE

In this drawing series, I combine fragments of text from the “Arabian Nights,” with ink drawings, paint and fabric remnants. The soft rag paper and watercolor surfaces feel familiar, like old friends, but the work is also informed by my recent exploration of quilt-making and textile collage. Using both paper and cloth has made me freer about the formal constraints of space and opens me up to unsettled fragments in the compositions.
