"Free Enterprise" is one of my mixed media pieces focused on creating collages using old and discarded books. It is comprised of book cover cloth, end papers, illustrations and binding material. The collage is built on watercolor paper and then adhered to a wood cradled board. Randomly splattered acrylic ink and gold leaf complete the piece. This is my way of repurposing abandoned, ordinary objects and turning them into unique works of art.
