Collage is cool

I had so much fun collaging mono prints, woodcut prints & found paper. I lay these cut out shapes on and around the screen printed images.
I really enjoyed looking at the textures & colours, seeing how they felt against one another.

For each composition, I always started in the center of the image & worked my way outwards.
I worked on one at a time to a point where I felt that was enough, or with some I would do so much, put it a side/.... start some more & then eventually go back to an unfinished work and complete it.

I let the clothing dictate the nature of how the work evolved.
On some of the collaged works I combined elements of 'drawing' to it, my signature.
