When creating my collages, I prefer to work primarily from discarded scrap wood. Aside from painting the finished product, I tend to avoid altering the scrap pieces when assembling these works, as it is important that these found pieces have a somewhat random feel. Discovering order amongst an otherwise arbitrary selection of materials is a major part of my practice with my collages and other artistic works. I find this process to be extremely satisfying, and in a sense cathartic.
