I create collages usually no bigger than my 9”x12” scanner out of my home studio in Montreal, Quebec. My scanner itself has been a tool at the center of my art practice for many years. With it, I easily digitize my analog work for printing or online publishing, but scanning also satisfies my curiosity in documentation, processing and archiving. In the last few years, I have taken collage-on-the-go, whether it be road trips to Upstate New York, month-long stints in Nova Scotia, or exploring Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec. The transient lifestyle of moving from place to place raises its own set of challenges that the confines of a small city studio do not. However, I can’t deny that traveling affords me an opportunity to feed off the cultural and natural landscapes of places I’ve visited, particularly small communities with rich histories. When I do get up and go, I take with me my scissors, a glue stick, and a book stuffed with scraps of paper, ephemera and cardboard.
