I have long been a Francophile and aspire to be fluent in French. I have had the pleasure of traveling to France many times. I was attracted to a collage book by the artist Anna Corba, loving her French vintage style. I have since had the pleasure of taking her art seminars in France over the past two years. Admittedly, her artistic style is an influence on my creations.
The expression of my art comes from a love of times past. I try to use vintage materials where possible and to impart a vintage patina to the finished piece through encaustic wax. I love to use vintage French book pages, vintage sheet music and passementerie in my collages. On my sojourns I bring back vintage books, letters and postcrds that you will find woven into my creations.
The hand-bound blank journals are the creation of my husband Joseph. We belong to the MN Center for Book Arts, where we have taken classes in book binding, paper making and marbling paper. My husband hand finishes the wood, hand tears paper and hand stitches in the tradition of days of yore.
I have just been published for the fist time in the Summer, 2012 issue of Creating Vintage Charm Magazine. Here you can see my banner "Victorian Bathing Beauties"
It is my fervent desire to bring to you the highest of quality workmanship with the best of quality materials. Hoping that you enjoy every piece or that your gift brings pleasure to your recipient.

Thank you for your patronage. A general note with regard to shipping. I package a single 5"x7' collage in an insulated shipping envelope. Two 5"x7" collages will fit in a US postal set price box. Larger pieces will consequently cost more for shipping as they will require a larger box. The cones need to be shipped a box to protect their shape. Books can be shipped for book rate. I strive to protect my work in shipping as a lot of pride goes into each piece.
I am excited to share my work with you and I want it to grace your home or be a delightful gift. Thank you, Valerie
