Storytelling With Collage



If you happen to follow me on facebook, you'll know that my work appears in Roxanne Evans Stout's new book, Storytelling With Collage: Techniques for Layering, Color and Texture. I'm extremely excited and honored to have my work included in this beautiful book, along with the work of so many talented artists. I haven't yet posted the piece by itself, and I thought now would be a good time to share it.

mixed media collage, 9.25 x 15.50 inches

To read the story that goes with this piece as well as many others, you can order the book from Amazon here. The book is loaded with great ideas, instruction on various techniques, and truly scrumptious artwork and photographs to look at.




Thanks to Roxanne Evans Stout for her graciousness, and for making the process so easy and enjoyable!
