I often come across interesting paper ephemera, and other postal related items, while working on my mixed media paintings and collages. If these items aren’t immediately used in the pieces I am working on, I put them aside for later consideration. I have been collecting vintage postcards in this manner for over 20 years. These postcards are altered and then combined, through cutting and pasting, with my original photography. The result is a unique composition juxtaposing disparate subjects, environments and time periods.
