In late 2009 I looked at my drawing table which was strewn with scraps of torn up prints and paintings and decided to make a series of collages with what was there. The rule was I couldn't generate any new scraps, or look around for other pieces to use - I had to use up what was already lying on my desk. Thus began the Picking Up the Pieces series of work.
By sometime in 2010 I'd cleaned up the desk, but decided to keep going with the series, by cleaning out some drawers that were also full of scraps. The work on this page represents a small number of the almost 100 collages I ultimately completed.
