Tigers have long been one of my favorite animals, one that has intrigued me and captured my imagination. I often like to being new works with a layer of collage. In this case, I've used both a map and a page fragment from a book. When using book pages, I also find it interesting to look for a new narrative by selecting certain words or eliminating others.
