European Collages, all approx. 2.3”x4” each, mixed media on board 1997
As I continue to organize and archive I came across these forgotten treasures. I started making small mixed media collages long before the 2011 Project. This series of 12 geographic, travel themed pieces were done in 1997. Each was for a different European country. I printed these images and used them in handmade magnets. Nowadays printing technology has improved and become less expensive. I see cool artists magnets at shows and craft fairs all the time. Back in 1998, I sold about 25 of the magnets in a small shop in the Richmond. If you have one, hang on to it — it’s a collector’s item.
As far as my current work, one could say its come full circle, as I am working on a series of travel-themed work for an installation later this year.
