Sounds of Silence

Very happy with this paper collage on canvas; includes my eco dyed papers, vintage pattern tissue, handwriting, paint washes and prints I made with vintage Japanese hand-carved woodblocks. Cordula Kagemann’s workshop has opened up a whole new world for me!  

Stop, look and listen
