I discovered collage art several years ago - and fell in love! I have always been a collector of things; I still remember the baby food jar of pretty pebbles chosen from a creek that ran through the farm I grew up on. Mom poured water in the jar to help clean up those precious gems, and we placed it in the kitchen windowsill to admire the soft beauty of the stones...the jar remained there and when it got cold that winter (I grew up in the Northern part of the US) the water in the jar froze, trapping tiny air bubbles amid the pebbles - the effect was beautiful.
I think that is what started my passion for trying to bring groups of seemingly unrelated objects together into a unified wholeness that speaks - the essence of creating collage! Putting various "things" together to create a unique whole is still one of the favorite ways I create! I love to sew, create stained glass, "play" with costume…
