Course Description

All around my studio I have bowls of torn abstract lines and forms, cut up vintage fabrics, papers with my marks, odds and ends of vintage trinkets and ephemera and then another full of stitched vintage French linen scraps. Often as I am creating, I will pull these bowls around me to see if any of these treasures will find their way into my current work.

One day as I was sorting through these bowls, I started to create just with them. I wasn’t adding them to a larger work but using those scraps of color, stitches, papers and more to create a new collage piece with a foundation of fabrics. I then layered with vintage ephemera, more stitching and then of course a little plaster.

Each time someone comes into my studio it is one of the first things that people notice and gravitate towards and I am obsessed with them too.
