Announcement   These collages reflect my love of story and tokens of the past.

Something as simple as a faded letter, an old photograph, a discarded key can suggest a story, or evoke associations of a time long past. Trolling antiques markets in Munich and London, I've found many such items to include in my collages. While making some of them, the first line of a story or poem will come to me and I'll print it out and include it in the collage.

Thanks for your visit.

If you care for a glimpse into my creative process - and various other topics as the whim takes me - please feel free to visit my blog: www.beneaththebracken.blogspot.com

About

When a love of story and art intersect.

The collage / assemblages I've been creating over the past few years developed organically, as I found certain of my creative interests intersecting.

I love painting, something I've always done (and which I have a separate website for), but also love making journals by hand; trolling antiques markets for tokens which evoke a sense of story and of bitter-sweet memory: photos of people long gone, fragments of antique letters, keys to forgotten and perhaps vanished rooms. I've long had a fascination for all things miniature. And one of my longest and deepest loves, stories: reading, hearing, and creating stories.

I continue to paint large abstract works, as well as make my smaller oil paint collages, and nature inspired collages (the latter two which appear in my Etsy shop), but these days my heart is with my story collages, which are an endless joy to make.

Thanks for stopping by.

Best,
Lynn.
