This is my postcard for the Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap. It is now on its way to Judith Dziadosz in the USA. It had to contain fabric, stitching and text.
Stencilled on text, with rust-dyed fabric, burnt paper and gold thread, this postcard is but one of the smaller works that occupy me while I'm resting between large paintings.
Other smaller works that keep me amused are ATCs that I swap with all sorts of people...mostly on Paper Traders. They set themes that occasionally grab me , some of which I've illustrated below.
|When Granny Joined The Circus - for Oddball Ancestors|
|Guilt Free Pleasure - for My Wish For You|
|This Ol' House - for Postage Stamp People|
These are usually collaged using images from various sources, sometimes digitally altered.
These projects have enabled me to collect quite an accumulation of tiny art pieces from all over the world.
