There’s a lot I enjoy about creating collaged artworks.
I enjoy the process of discovery – looking through the color-sorted bins of fabric and paper I’ve created to find interesting colors and patterns to put together.
I enjoy the variety of materials, and how they interact with each other. Rice paper, sheer fabric and opaque fabric all take acrylic paint images a little differently, so they are pleasing to combine.
I enjoy the ability to compose by moving things around. Collage work is very tactile.
And, once the parts are created, the actual process of putting a work together goes pretty quickly. I enjoy seeing a blank page turn into a finished work.
I took some step-by step studio photos this past week of a collage as it progressed. This is a Florida Wildlife piece, “A Morning for Reflection.” It is 16” x 20”, sized to go in a mat that fits a 20” x 24” frame.

If you’d like to watch step-by-step as it is created, here is a 2 – ½ minute video that shows the work in progress. I hope you’ll enjoy watching it come together:
