Lefkollages


Welcome to my blog hop. Everyday from April 2nd through April 12th I will link to a different blog as part of my celebration of the release of my book The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed. There will be book reviews, personal thoughts, and giveaways. And every blogger along the way will become part of the book, as they will also post their own responses to their choice of survey questions from the book. You too can be part of The Pulse by responding to my open call for art!

And on each day of the blog hop, I will also be sharing something extra. And today is an extra you will not want to pass by!


Collage artist and journaler Nancy Lefko has a way with paper. She creates the most wonderful, playful, often-vintage-inspired works of art. She sometimes adds a touch of humor, sometimes a touch of whimsey, and often times a meaningful message. I had the pleasure of meeting her last year at Art is...You and cannot wait to catch up with her once again at Art is...You in October. Like her art, she is also filled with humor and whimsey. Head on over to this post where she takes on The Pulse of Mixed Media AND hosts a giveaway for a copy of the book.

Nancy Lefko is a delight! The interaction between patterns and textures in the layers of her work has delicious eye appeal! Loved what she had to say in response to the 3 questions that she selected from the book!

Nancy's collages have that nice balance of whimsy and message. I enjoyed visiting her.

Nancy's art journal pages are adorable and her coffee collages are fun to see. I enjoyed reading her answers to the questions, too.
