Kids' Collages!

There is lots of change going on here as I am still trying to figure out how to make a living at this amazing but challenging thing called ART! I'm in the process of developing a class to teach at some local places. If I works out well, I might even offer a class online. In the meantime, it is giving me a reason to dig out these fun photos of the KIDS' COLLAGES I have made for my nieces and nephews!

These were actually my FIRST projects in what has evolved into my own unique art style of "collage-painting!" I made these in 2011 and 2012, and they still hang on the walls in my siblings' homes. I sent out surveys to my brother and sisters and asked what their kid's favorite things were. More precisely, their two favorite colors, animals, foods, and games/sports/activities. From their answers, I made a custom work of art for each kid. I hope you enjoy these photos of the process and the finished pieces. 

p.s. I was into Instagram filters for a few weeks back in 2012! Please, don't hold that against me ðŸ˜‰hahahahah!

...and please forgive me for the squishy pictures. If I wait until I get everything right I'll never post!
