Open-Ended Communication

Open-Ended Communication

“Open-Ended Communication” is a transitional piece that creates a pathway from the envelope-specific pieces (In The Clear, Going Forth) early in this series to more conceptual pieces (Once Upon A Time, Lifelong Buddies). The focal point in this piece is the small central envelope, which was originally created to stand on its own. The brown […]

A Common Thread, Collages, Numbers 1-8

A Common Thread, Collages, Numbers 1-8

As I worked on the All Buttoned Up series, I got to thinking about thread. The thread in that series had to be hidden, so I wanted to do a series that focused on thread. As with that series, these are small postcard sized collages. Behind each collage is a piece of a wallpaper sample […]

National Collage Society Postcard Show, 2013

The National Collage Society’s postcard show is such a cool show. It’s exactly what it sounds like; all entries are postcard-sized: 4×6 inches, no bigger, no smaller. Dozens and dozens of them line the walls, each one a tiny gem. My entry, “Red Sky At Morning”, is pictured at right. We’re fortunate this year to […]

Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap, 2013

Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap, 2013

I love the postcard swap. Why? I love getting mail – real handwritten mail – in my box. I love postcards – bright, colorful, cheerful. Postcards are the best kind of mail because they’re symbolic of something special. I love art – ok, that one’s a given. I love connecting with other artists. All that […]

Red Sky At Morning, a Collage

Red Sky At Morning, a Collage

“Red Sky at Morning” is a small (6×4 inch) collage made with printed images, handmade papers, purchased letters, and a page from a map. I glued the map piece onto the backing board first, then adding the other pieces on top. I love using maps in my collages, partly for all the connotations of a […]


The House Around the Corner, a Collage

The House Around the Corner, a Collage

“The House Around the Corner” is a small, postcard-sized collage (4×6 inches). It’s made with a collection of printed images, handmade papers, tissue, acrylic paints and inks, and a vintage stamp. As I was working on it, I was not thinking of any house in particular, but lots of them in general. Mine – this […]

“Lakeside” is a small postcard-sized collage, 4 inches high by 6 inches wide. It has bits of magazine photos, some handmade (but not by me) paper, acrylic paint, tissue, and a few lines of gray stitching.

Postcard Swap Blog Hop

The postcard swap is finally over. Six postcards have arrived in the mail, and are comfortably posted around my studio. This swap is so much fun. I’m still a kid at heart – I love opening the mailbox and finding a real piece of mail, from a real person with a handwritten address and note. […]

Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap, The Wrap-Up

Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap, The Wrap-Up

The postcard swap has been fun. I sent off cards of my artwork with a little note on the back. Then, every few days, I’d get a delightful surprise in the mail – a new postcard with a wonderful image on the front and a note on the back. All the cards came from artists […]
