About my collages:
The photo collage shadow boxes that I create are made from images of vintage postcards. The images are printed on a special linen card stock, then layered and reassembled, using spacers, to create a three dimensional effect. They are then framed in shadow boxes. All of my work is signed. I also do collages using my photographs.
In addition, I have done several custom collage shadow boxes for customers.
