Le Collagerie

"As an artist, the genre of collage art allows me to create an optical illusion for the viewer. While from a distance one sees the full image, close-up the piece reveals a myriad of details. All through my collections, one finds the continuous elements of curiosity and all things whimsical."

Arizona - Collage 10 x 15 in.

"Collage initially started as a form of meditation for me. Having been diagnosed with a mild case of Tourette Syndrome at a young age, looking through magazines and cutting clippings to create works of art provided a sense of calm and focus needed during a time of drastic change. I quickly realized my passion for giving old, recycled images from magazines a new life and meaning through collage. Having grown up on the border of Mexico and now living in San Francisco, my work is greatly inspired by color, fashion, culture and exploration.

As an artist, the genre of collage art allows me to create an optical illusion for the viewer. While from a distance one sees the full image, close-up the piece reveals a myriad of details. All through my collections, one finds the continuous elements of curiosity and whimsy conveying a spirited quality to each piece. Each collage is composed of donated recycled magazine clippings (or paper) making it Mother Earth-friendly."
