Dar's Cut Paper Collage

My life as an artist began with cut paper and, in the very beginning, handmade greeting cards made from the odds and ends of colored, patterned paper. Backgrounds are created with acrylic paints, layered with drips and splashes, and hand-painted papers build images through cut shapes. Aside from fine art pieces and private commissions, my children's books are illustrated using this method.
