Encaustic collage using bits & pieces of old books.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Through my collage work I lend new life to old books. I find them in second hand shops and dusty used book stores. I am drawn to them for their neglected but well loved facades. In my studio I dismantle them to glean notable snippets. I take the fragments of worn bindings, found scribbles and tattered pages and arrange them into compositions of senescent beauty.
