Collage & Mixed media

I first started to collect material for collages on a visit to Florence in the early seventies when, much to my wife's embarrassment, I tore off bits of weathered old posters from the city's ancient walls. More than 30 years were to pass before I actually started to use them to make collages. 

My collages and mixed media works are made from anything and everything - paper, fabrics, leaves, grasses and bits and pieces rescued from skips and pavements. Many collage artists inspire me, Kurt Schwitters of course, but also people like Sandra BlowAlberto BurriJoseph CornellGwyther IrwinRobert Motherwell and Robert Rauschenberg.
