  1. Your art, which I adore, reminds me of Tom Phillips's A Humument, which also is painted on found paper (see humument.com). If you like that book, you might want to add a link to your site.

  2. Thank you Yuval, those are very kind words. I have seen "A Humument" which is a magnificent, intriguing, baffling and beautiful piece of work. I had no idea that it was also online, thank you for pointing that out. I will be adding a link soon.

    I first came across "A Humument" many many years ago. Maybe in the early 90s, I think? It fascinated me then, and I am certain that is what started my obsession with found papers, painting and drawing on and in books, and layering imagery. So there is definitely a strong line connecting Phillips' work to my own efforts, in my mind at least.
