The Process

Vaquera (Indigo) with Longhorn is constructed from hand-cut papers on wood panel. All of the papers are vintage, dating from the late 1800s through 1950s/1960s, and selected because of their printed color. When creating these works, I glean through vintage magazines, old ticket stubs, comic books, posters, calendars, and old maps, just to name a few sources. Once I have a good stockpile of these materials, I cut and layer them to create the imagery. Each little piece, including the smallest detail in her hat, is hand cut with scissors.
