My Torn series began with the idea to repurpose photographs and assorted papers and textiles. Some hold creative content on their own, while others are appreciated for their vibrant colors. I tear, crumple and compose to create abstract movement and structure. I then photograph the raw media to redefine and complete the process. Disguised elements often find themselves within.
