Mermaid Life

This sweet collaged mermaid stands out on her colorful, intricate, layered background.

The collage measures 16″x20″ on a wrapped canvas, with painted edges and a protective gloss finish, she is ready to hang.

I created this coastal-inspired gal for Wine, Whine and Design at the Port Aransas Art Center.

Fifteen ladies joined us and we collaged our fingers off!

Tiny Dancer

This sweet collaged ballerina stands out on her colorful, intricate, layered background.

The collage measures 7”x14″ on a wrapped canvas, with painted edges and a protective gloss finish, she is ready to hang.  (Yes, the tiny dancer does extend past the edge a bit – like she’s right there in the room with you!)

 

Stepping Out

“Stepping Out” is an original, handcut paper collage on 5″x5″ heavy watercolor paper.

If you look at the pose of this vintage catalog gal, in her hat and suit, you see that she has some serious attitude. That is what drew me to her image and why I wanted to highlight her in this square format. Her background is made of other vintage papers, but she is the focus and you can imagine that she is definitely “stepping out.”

 

Etta’s Brooch

This sweet vintage gal stands out on her colorful, intricate, layered background. She loves travel, and is dressed up in her “skirt of maps” and her finest brooch.

The collage measures 7”x14″ on a wrapped canvas, with painted edges and a protective gloss finish, she is ready to hang.  (Yes, the skirt of maps does extend past the edge a bit – like she’s right there in the room with you!)
