Collages 2007-2014

The images below are part of a series of collages informed by anthropomorphic fables and early American folk art, incorporating imagery drawn from natural forms, botanical illustration and quilts.  The collages are made with hand-cut papers painted with watercolor and gouache with the addition of pinpricks and minute hole-punched papers adhered one dot at a time to the surface of the paper.
