“The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings.” – Kakuzo Okakura

All collages are made using various papers and mixed-media. I employ various images, mono-printing, stickers, ink, ephemera, papers, stamps, small found objects, duct tape, alcohol inks etc. For these pieces I focused on having a cohesive patterned background.
