MIXED MEDIA II

The pieces in this collection are mixed media assemblages with a focus on the heart image. I've incorporated ephemera from nature, travel and everyday life from which I pull inspiration. The assemblages are based with decorative papers then layered with tags, trinkets and other whimsical items that reflect our lives.

Escape

There comes a time when we all need to escape our day to day lives and head out on an exciting adventure. Sometimes we need a break from those we love, sometimes we need a rest from our gruelling work schedule. Travel is a means of escape, we grab a map or a travel brochure and we are off to reinvigorate our souls. Some people like to head to a beach full of sun, sand and seashells while others prefer to explore quaint corners of the globe to learn of new cultures and experience new ways of life. We return home rested and ready to tackle what life has to throw us.
