A Collage Maker and a Paper Alchemist
I name myself.....or I should say what I do...A collage maker and a paper alchemist
and what does that mean all together?
Being a entrepreneur...a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater then normal financial risks in order to do so. had to though that in there because if you an artist you have area's in your job where there's less income coming in...so you create other business to keep the stream of income flowing...
I called myself a collage maker...I'm really in love with the process of it all and I believe a maker of things, or old school wordage is craftsman or craftsperson. Working with my hands has always been a must do. And I love of attaching things, tie knots, threads, and fibers.
And the love of paper started long time ago I remember smelling the coloring book as I sat at the dining room table surrounded but plants in my Grandfather house off of Ogden Ave by Fairview Ave. There was a distinct smell and set me off into a state of openness...if that sound right? it took me out of all other place and brought me to my imagination...a place I so like to go too even to this day.
The word recently popped into my head it was Paper Alchemist...I'm a paper alchemist, I like that word and what it represents for me...A Paper Alchemist is one that loves to be in the process of transformation, creation and or connection with paper, seemingly creating a magical space with paper and it's surface.
Transforming the surface of paper....one way.
Artist in the process of evolving in the state of change...like the world alway rotating around...
