Sources of inspiration. Burning holes in stained washi paper to add into my mixed-media collage work. TI like to create my own collage paper, distressing them and altering them to have a look and feel from my memory of the beach and all that I see there. There seems to be so many holes in the different species. Barnacles look like holes, the boring sponges create holes in scallop shells, weathered worn seaweed has holes in it… These are some of the words I think about when I am working, thinking like this, allows me to think laterally, get out of the box or groove and push myself to think up new ways of working.
