As the days grow longer
The storms grow stronger.
This is an assemblage made with found objects. I used metal hinges, vintage textiles remnants, and an image of a long ago girl that I altered with paint and ink. The glass orb has the words “strong winds” behind it. It has a tiny lock and key and wire to further embellish it. The work hangs from the muslin fabric tie.
The body of the work is 8 inches long and with the hanging ribbon it is 14 inches long

Nothing is the same.
This is an assemblage created with an antique bisque doll fragment, a frame piece that I covered in a rock like texture. I used painted wire, old hinge, green orb, strips of muslin, odd key and other found objects to create the work. The size is 6 inches wide and 7 inches tall. It hangs from a muslin strip.

Somerset Studio Workshop Autumn 2009 issue has my article on shadow spray paint technique art creating assemblage art and backgrounds using found objects.
Also if you get a chance read Rusty Things by Michael De meng. Great ideas for an assemblage or mixed media artist!

The background and the dream like frame is made with my spray paint technique featured in my Somerset Work Shop article I did this fall. The image of a black bird, rusty cogs and a tiny light bulb with a secret message inside embellish the work. The piece is mounted on a canvas board panel. The size is 8 inches by 10 inches.

Trust in Dreams
. The background is made with my spray paint technique featured in my Somerset Work Shop article I did this fall. The work is created on cardstock and mounted on cigar box lid. The altered medical book image, a colorful bird, text from a Kahil Gibran poem and found objects such as a tiny key, rusty cog and a tiny light bulb with a secret message inside .. The size is 6.5 inches by 9 inches. It has a wire on the back for easy display, but could be used for a great journal cover!
