“We must recognize and nurture the creative parts of each other without always understanding what will be created.”
― Audre Lorde
About five years ago, with urging from my therapist, I leaned into a creative process that has become an important part of my life. Collaging and creating have always been important to me. Creating has found its way into so many parts of my life.
In this current moment, Collaging is my central creative practice. I work with leftover, thrown away, and discarded materials mostly. The practice is teaching me, expanding me, and helping me trust myself.
It is my goal to keep this practice as a place of rest for me, not to make it into work. This can feel complex in our current economic reality. I find the balance by occasionally creating commissions, putting my creations on merchandise, and through the support of folks investing in my Patreon Community. The best way to support me is to consider joining that community.
I am choosing to center Collage in my daily life. I look forward to sharing what comes forth...
I am doing small runs of merchandise as a way to share work with folks who want to wear it, hang it, and gift it. Your support is a gift to me.
