A Unique Perspective

John M. Williams specializes in creating portrait collages of historical figures with a special interest in the Civil War. In effect “painting with paper,” John uses hundreds of small pieces of cut paper to create a likeness of his subject revealing the person’s character as well as his historical significance. The results are compelling, multifaceted fine art collages.
