Creating collage art and working with all sorts
of mixed media objects has allowed me to
nurture another love of mine, which is collecting.
Of course in pursuit of my artistic endeavors,
over the years, I have rummaged and scoured
through many a flea market, and antique store,
dollar bin and sales rack hoping to uncover
those unique treasures that make my heart
Items, I envision, to be part of an artwork
that might be exhibited or perhaps lucky
enough to be published. At the very least,
a piece to be displayed and cherished.
Making something from all these random
bits, seems a bit magical, leaving me to
wondering if I, the artist, am some sort
of cross between mad-scientist, and alchemist.
My studio is my laboratory, of sorts, as I
keep all of my important what-not collections
prominently displayed, and within arms length,
ready for me to include in my work should
my creation require it.
How do you display your treasures?
