Portfolio: Print Collage

Mixed media low relief

I have always made collage work.  Making a collagraph printmaking plate is always a collaging process.  I make small collages combining small pieces of original prints as frameable greeting cards, which are very popular at events.  Recently I have started to make larger collage work using sections of 'spare' prints and including pieces of the printing plates themselves.  These acquire a pleasing patina with use and add another dimension to the work.
