I came to tin collage very accidentally. I had painted for many years, and had been a cartoonist and illustrator many more. Words and pictures went together for me. I was looking for a new medium. I had seen artists use tin in other ways: shrines, toys, and jewelry. I covered a birdhouse with it, and enjoyed the process while learning about the medium. Then I thought of recombining some car letters I found on the street as a narrative to go with composite images I created piecing the ‘harvested’ tin fragments into a whole. I have promised myself to create these pieces solely by editing. These are a function of my accidental finds. Come on my journey.
