Something constructed or created from a diverse range of things


noun bri·co·lage \ ˌbrē-kō-ˈläzh , ˌbri- \

something constructed or created from a diverse range of available things

a term derived from the French verb bricoler (meaning "to putter about") and related to bricoleur, the French name for a jack-of-all-trades

Each of my whimsical collages are compilations of many bits of ephemera –vintage postcards, letters, stamps, photos, matchbooks, textbooks, storybooks, field guides, balance sheets, currency, magazines…most are created on the pages of a 4” x 6” leather bound journal, some require a bigger field, but rarely exceed 7” x 9”

I suppose that their creation is my way of tracing uncharted paths, sure that the undiscovered awaits me…

They are my slivers of story, expressions of emotion, and chance to play…
