"Crafting new work from old or discarded materials" For me, collage was a natural progression of my experimental image making. Old book covers, match boxes, stickers, post cards, driftwood, odds and ends I pick up from my travels and the hundreds of rejected photographs I have taken over the years which have some flaw, or such, I have kept and stored in countless boxes. All are used to some extent in my collage work. This cut and paste method of creating images is considered by some to be Folk Art, "Outsider Art," or "Art Brut." Art produced by those untrained in a formal setting.
