Della Badart's Profile

About

I am Della Badart I was a Journalism Major but I have always loved art and making things. I love all mediums but focus on collage. It is perfect because I can use my layout and design skills from years in advertising. I now live in Austin, my aesthetic comes from growing up in Houston, the years I lived in Key West, Florida and my mother. I was surrounded by cool books astrology, meditation, yoga and found creativity in boredom.

I love to use recycle objects books, altoid tins, bottle caps, cabinets, reclaimed wood and bits of ephemera find themselves in my work. I love the entire process of making a piece. I spend lots of time sorting through chest of clippings, magazines and piles or objects. I made a lovely tin box with a quote of Thoreau. I had put the box aside because it was some how incomplete.

Weeks later at brunch I came across a picture of Thoreau I was overjoyed. Now the piece was complete. One little girl found a tin at a show with trumpeting angels; she said her grandma would love the box. When she bought the box she said she would incorporate a picture of her grandma who had passed on. I love the idea of her adding to the collage to complete the piece.

I hope my collage work creates an image which resonates peace, serenity, loyalty; knowledge that thing that makes you cry or laugh. I want you to be touched and feel emotion each time you look at the images. I made them for you I just didn’t know it at the time.
