Creative Collages

True Love
Dreaming is easy

Never be sad

I'm an admirer of Alexisanne's work ( - she is such a creative inspiration!

She writes about her work: "All of my collages are composed by hand - cut from books I've been collecting for years, and painstakingly pieced together as seamlessly as possible. They
create themselves through a process beginning with a loose concept, followed by
a series of trials and errors, subtle maneuvers, selection/elimination, harmonious
unions, and happy accidents. It is a meditative process, and there is a lot of
decision-making behind each element involved.

My general intent, throughout all my work, is to portray the world as a flawed
thing of beauty - a place that shines brightly, but has a dark side to match."
