Drawings & Collage

As opposed to many of my oils and collages that may derive from multiple source materials– my own sketches and studies, photographs and the like–most of my drawings are directly from life and as such, are timed works, most no more than twenty minutes in the making. I regularly attend life drawing sessions where these drawings are made.


I recently inherited a cache of decorative papers which I have utilized in my collage work. As a person who loves puzzles, I love to break units into fragments, and then stitch them back together. This makes collage a fabulous fit as a medium. I often combine the collaged elements with painted ones to create some interesting compositions and textural effects not possible with paint alone.
