These images are constructed with clippings from magazines or other books.
By moving pieces around the page, the correct positions present themselves for different parts.
I learned a lot about how to understand painting perspective by doing these collages too.
Hope you enjoy exploring the gallery below.

This collage is the first one I did (in 1999) where, instead of randomly putting objects on a page, I sought to arrange them consciously, to create a cohesive picture. I discovered that by combining an old English street, a Queenslander verandah and some Whitsunday's waters, the effect was distinctly Mediterranean! Previously, I had used collages without thought of order, but rather as explorations of what the subconscious would choose to cut out and place on a page...
This is a collage that was cut from magazine pictures and then enhanced and altered on the computer.
