Whoahh, Terie!

“You are lost the moment you know what the result will be.”
—Juan Gris

Years ago, as an old-school graphic designer and illustrator, I found myself rapidly adapting to a more computer-oriented profession. As a response, I began creating more greeting cards by hand to preserve my manual dexterity. I’d been making cards since youth, but this provided a new opportunity to experiment with greater intuitive spontaneity, so I created over a thousand hand-crafted “miniatures” between 1999 and 2003. Most of these exercises took the form of birthday, anniversary, and holiday cards. The near-daily practice established a foundation and direction for my current work as a collage artist who focuses on the small format. I still produce as many as 100 cards a year, most of which rely on “found material,” as with the works I make available for purchase by collectors.
