I spent 14 years in Paris, France where I lived and graduated from college. After graduation, I stayed on to make films. As a filmmaker, it was relaxing to make collage because you can complete them a lot faster than a film!

I loved the way the French play with words in their speech and liked the idea of juxtaposing words with text in another language. As a foreigner, I was not married to the meaning of the words as a native speaker would be. I never went to art school and was self-taught as a filmmaker, winning awards at many international film festivals before returning to the USA. These collages, cut from newspapers and magazines, were done while living in Paris and consequently are all in French.
