Portfolio > Mixed Media

I made my first of this kind of mixed media/collage work in Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston where my mother was a patient. Making art passed the time, and paper and pastel pencils were a lot easier and less conspicuous to work with in a hospital than turpentine and oil paint—my usual go-to medium.

What began as an activity to alleviate boredom turned out to be a lot of fun, and so I carried on with the paper and pencils, constructing more elaborate and larger collages and drawing in the faces.
