In March of 2011 I received a Continuing Studies Faculty Enrichment Grant. With the support of this grant, I was able to attend a weeklong workshop at Snow Farm in Williamsburg, Mass., this past summer. The class I took was entitled Collage: the Imaginative Use of Materials taught by Alexandra Sheldon. Through guided experimentation, my experience with collage opened up a world without boundaries and enabled me to explore a new level of imagination I have not been able to find through my oil painting. My hope is to somehow apply and bring out this newly found fun and whimsical approach to creativity in my total oeuvre.
