The root of all my work is collage. Almost every Monday morning between 2004 and 2009, I would come up with a word, do a Google image search, and make a collage out of what I found on the first page. Some words were directly related to events in my life (wed, Vespa, Hawley) and some were just random. I typically used basic masking, lots of layers with blend spaces, scale, and always a square page.
