I started collaging in 2005 and quickly became encompassed by it's ability to help me create an image of perfection in my mind. I would spend an hour or so flipping through magazines from the Vogue to National Geographic I ripped out anything I saw appealing then later got to work. Whatever it was about collaging that helped me keep focused in other aspects of my life, I am grateful for. Since 2005 I have filled several notebooks, sketchbooks, binders, etc with collages. I have also created large framed collages and have collages common day objects as well. My nightstand, jewelry box, school notebooks, seemingly everything that adhesive sticks to, I collage it. I collage it and I love it!
