Patterned Paper Series
In this series, I used decorative paper as a jumping-off point for my creative process. It is an exploration of materials, color, shape, and pattern, but like much of my artwork it is also an exploration of the two sides of creation — the structured and organic, the restricted and open. Much like in life, each decision and result informs the next. The collage elements vary — resin, confetti, candy wrappers, and photographs — bringing together unconnected and often mass-produced items to create harmony in abstract organic dreamscapes.
