Collage is my art therapy. It provides me an intuitive process to examine fragments of my personal experience with grief, trauma, and anxiety. I like to work with discarded books and magazines and explore how the materials push the art in unexpected directions. The tactile nature of the handmade process is an important counterbalance to my digital graphic design work.
