Sometimes a girl's just gotta have fun! I've been playing around with art since I was a small one - it's partially why I make my living as a freelance illustrator. Finding one's voice takes time and experience. I love what I do as an illustrator, but I always need to be creating and making my own work.
Presenting my newest venture into my own personal making, torn paper art. There are few boundaries I place on how I ultimately create each piece. Most of these pieces are created using up-cycled, recycled and re-purposed papers. If I'm truly desperate for a certain color or pattern, I'll flip through the OLD books in my book cases...I restrain myself from removing pages of novels. But, ancient foreign language texts, old medical textbooks, crazy old natural history books, old maps - are all fair game for my torn paper portraits.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy making them. Prints will be available soon. Some originals are for sale. Send me a note if you see one you simply can't live without! Enjoy!
