From the Book

A Life in Collage

An Excerpt:

My mind needed to explore a self-portrait in collage form. Browsing through magazines and pictures already on file, I began a five-hour task of cutting, pasting, and piecing together the story of my life - totally absorbed, unable to stop until it was finished.

Illustrated Collage

The impact of seeing what I knew to be true at a cognitive level was almost shocking to me in a visual or pictorial dimension. It had a profound effect in the emotional realm, carrying a much more poignant message than words ever could.

Standing back in amazement, observing that the essence of my life – all its pain, subversive control, soul imprisonment, hope, and heavenly aid - was able to be captured with a few torn out pictures, it dawned on me that divine intervention in this process was most certainly present. The schematic I had created rendered a gut wrenching ”great sadness” that had always been lurking in the background of my life, but it also depicted a blessed hope and ever-present help and comfort.

What They're Saying

EMERGENCE is a multisensory experience that grabbed me by the heart and would not let go until I cried ‘Glory!’ It is a breathtaking story that integrates poetry, prose, and artwork, perfectly capturing the journey and joy of one set free.
