Paper from Italy becomes collages in Virginia

I find collages poem-like in their ability to create a narrative, a mood, or a composition from an array of originally unrelated bits. I opened an Etsy shop to share my passion for artwork made predominantly from paper.

My collages use a whimsical and eclectic mix of imagery and materials and frequently incorporate hand-painted elements. They are inspired by the many things that appeal to me.

Currently I am fascinated and charmed by natural history, old photos, things with wings, maps, birds and animals (real and imagined), the undersea world, saints and shrines, sculpture and architecture, ancient Roman art, cameos, silhouettes, curiosity cabinets, plants, and food.
