I am so proud to announce that the (still) unnamed, newest collage of mine is finally done. I am very pleased and happy. Of course, I would love to hear what you are thinking!
I am excited to share my newest venture... So far the piece remains unnamed, but I am sure a name will come to me eventually. I love the strong colors and how they complement each other.
Wood, unframed, 80X30in (2mX0.76m)
Still my all-time favorite, and still for sale;). Framed, 6'X4', sealed with glossy Epoxy. The base consists of vintage 1934 sheet music of The Marches from the Gilbert & Sullivan Operas, and parts of the 1939 edition of the Music Lovers’ Encyclopedia.
Slowly but surely the collage is coming together. I am very pleased with the result so far:).
After a bit of a hiatus, I just finished preparing a new, large canvas. Many ideas and inspirations need their outlet, and I will be able to let them out on this 5'x3' stretched piece of awesomeness!!!
I try to be better with social media, so I dusted off my old Instagram account and will post new and old items as time goes on:).

I am happy to announce that I just finished one of my larger pieces. Including the frame it is 4x4feet (or 122x122cm). Woah! It was a lot of work:), and a lot of thinking, cutting and ripping involved, but I am very pleased with the result. Below you can see a 'before' picture and the final collage.
I tried to include a certain fluidity and 'roundness' in the piece, as well as an ovation to the old masters.
I also experimented with 3D, which is shown in the silk flowers which actually sit above the piece (I am not sure if this is visible through the photograph).
The success of the piece gave me a huuuge motivational push and I am already thinking about what to do next. Stay tuned!

I was lucky enough to be invited to "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" yesterday with Neil Patrick Harris playing Hedwig. So inspirational!!! All this glitter, fabulous costumes and amazing performances - so close to my heart. That calls for an especially glittery collage!
