I have used cut-paper collage for a wide range of illustration assignments: children's books, adult bookcovers, ads, packaging, posters, greeting cards, and more. Collage can be bright, bold, humorous, wacky, and imaginative; it can be subtle, delicate, earth-toned, and realistic--and it can be anywhere in between. The art itself, created by a traditional cut-and-paste technique, is durable, permanent, and ideal for reproduction. The original can be flatbed scanned, or it can be delivered on disk or photo transparency.
