Published!


My goal this year was to improve and enhance my skills in two dimensional media, working with both drawing and painting. The figure in this collage was drawn in pencil, painted with liquid acrylic to allow the graphite to peek through and then cut out and applied to the collage created on canvas board. I could barely contain my excitement when I found that my collage had been published in the gallery section of Bee Shay's wonderful new book, Collage Lab!
