“I was an early adaptor of the computer, saw the writing on the screen and transitioned
to that for many years. It was a very effective tool, but I think it made me lazy, the work
suffered after a time, and I lost touch with my hands. It was great to start making real
collages again, which is all I do now. Family legend has it that I was left in my crib as a
toddler with lots of magazines, which I proceeded to tear into pieces. No glue, however.”
