Collage is a new medium for me and my work is experimental. I have created drawings on rice paper in my student past working in inks and pentels, but at that time paper choices at the art supply store were quite limited, and I had not considered collage. Because texture is an ongoing interest of mine, I now find myself attracted to the widening choices in rice paper, the variety of weights, the patterns and textures inherent to or added in the manufacturing process, as well as the paper’s reaction to a variety of grounds, paints and medium applications. And, of course, there is now online shopping! I am amazed at the variety of papers available, some now also offered in a choice of colors. This is an area that invites further play; experiments shall continue!
