These colourful and expressive works are heavily textured and created with ripped fragments of specially prepared paper sheets. These sheets are covered at random in acrylic paint and inks, crayons, pastels, charcoal, oilbars and metallic inks and crayons. Marks are made, mediums run into each other, scored and marked with a variety of objects and splattered with colour. When dry they are ripped into varying shapes and sizes and carefully assembled to create a pleasing composition. They are then glued to a canvas or heavy paper and more paint, inks, crayons and so on are added to complete the scene.
Many of these collage works are also available as signed prints - check out the 'Prints and Cards' gallery page for details. P &P free to all UK addresses.
