I live in Maryland and my interest in collage goes back years. I really got back into doing art at age 50 when I switched to part time work. My friends always loved what I did with cut and paste. I have taken quite a few classes in various styles of art that interested me,but I still feel collage is natural not learned. Take me into the New Year with more and more collage. I love this site already, from all I have seen. I am inspired already to get back to paper collage.
