Collage is an art form that combines an intended effect with an accidental one. I have a rough idea of the projected composition and let the idea evolve slowly, piece by piece. In this way imagination is given the upper hand. There are usually dozens of different ways in which the piece could turn out. The raw material - magazines, leaflets, photographs - allows vibrant colour and super-real effects. The final images are designed to be tongue in cheek, and with any luck spark off in the viewer odd ideas, messages, associations of an individual nature.
