This piece is pretty thick in some areas from layering lots of magazine cut-outs in order to get the figure looking right. It’s funny how that happens with some of my collages – if I have to focus a lot of energy and time on one area, the collage will feel heavier in that area when I lift the piece up.

In other news, Carly from mentioned me on her site in an article, “Art & Work of Creative Parenting: Field Trip Friday.” She discusses using collage as an art project for your child.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I’m taking care of quite a few errands, working on a new collage for my show in July, and of course, having some fun.

  1. Shes great- she looks so peaceful. I read somewhere that you want to illustrate a childrens book. I am in the process of that now. It is harder than I thought it would be but I am making progress slow but steady 🙂 Let me know when you start. Have a great weekend!

  2. I can’t tell from a web picture, but I wonder if that thickness actually contributes to the piece in real life adding another interesting dimension!

  3. You wow me every time. She’s fabulous, but I also love those buildings behind her. All those windows!

    A children’s book would be fantastic. An animated collage would be out of this world! Yay!
