salon des refuses

This is such a brilliant idea to deal with the rejection from a major local juried competition – I wish I was so clever and creative! Click the link to see works rejected from this year’s Southern Tier Biennial, wish I could find us a gallery in real space too! It would be a riot!! Long live the rejects, and of course congratulations to all who actually made this years show, looking forward to the opening!

studio update

I’ve been on a cleaning/reorganizing binge, trying to make my work space WORK for me! . I am enjoying summer gently unfolding and find myself in a strange and joyful place, despite being rejected yet again by the Southern Tier Biennial’s judges. I feel drawn to my paper and egg shells and so am content to remain with them a while despite lack of critical response. The big projects are slowly emerging, andI am busy as usual turning trash into book treasures in readiness for the few local festivals that support me through the summer months.  In the meantime I leave you with a couple of fun page meditations and two adorable new recycled books
