GH: What initially drew you to collaging/mixed media?
MC: I was in grad school, and trying to redefine my work. I had given up on painting at that point and wanted another outlet. I have always loved working on paper much more than canvas. When sourcing imagery and materials for my collages, books seemed a much more interesting way to find paper than a art supply store can ever offer. It also allows me to incorporate this hunt for materials into my practice that bring me out of my studio and into the “real” world.
