Go Look It Up

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

When I was little and asked my parents what something meant they always told me to “go look it up”, i.e in the dictionary, encyclopedia, etc. It’s not that they didn’t want to help me, they wanted me to learn to use the books and find the answers for myself. Maybe that’s why I now love old dictionaries? I remember mine was red, with little cut out half circles on the pages where the letters where, funny how things like that stick with you.

Here’s a few soldered pendants made with illustrations from a wonderful vintage dictionary from the early 20’s. I added black patina to all the soldering and the backs of the pieces are their definitions.

So Thrilled!

I’m so excited and honored to be in the latest issue of Altered Hearts digital zine! One of the contributors Edeena Cross contacted me recently asking to include some of my art work in their July issue, after I said “yes, of course”, she decided to feature alot of my work and also asked me questions about my background, working process, inspirations, etc and now there is two whole pages devoted to little ol’ me in their zine, how cool is that!?

The online magazine can be found at Scrap Artists. Click here for a direct link to the July issue, it’s only $3 and totally worth the few bucks, it’s chocked full of great interviews and art work from some really terrific collage artists.

Here’s the magazine cover, you’ll have to buy it to see my article and the rest;)
