Anna & Other Art
Anna, paper collage, 2023 Here are some new experiments in collage art. For the past week, I’ve been feeling rather frustrated with my collage practice. I’ve been uninspired. I’ve been forcing things. I found myself unable to play as freely as usual. All of which are strong indicators to me that I need new materials.…
Birds of Spring & Other Things
Brown-headed Cowbird (female) This collection of photographs spans about three or four weeks; although, I took the majority of these photos within the past week or so.
