Lost & Found: Found



Those of you who have followed my blog for more than a few years know how many collaborative art projects I have been involved with over time. Of late I have been way too busy to be able to partake, but I am happy to say that I have several new ones beginning again in 2014.

In the mean time, I was completely surprised to receive unexpected news via a text from Julie Prichard, she of the Land of Lost Luggage fame, saying that a collaboration that I completed with her and Lynne Hoppe back in 2010 was just published in Artists' Cafe Volume 7. This yearly publication culls articles from Somerset Studio, Sew Somerset, Somerset Apprentice and Art Journaling.


Our collaboration was called Graffiti Wall 2010. We each created our own hand painted papers and mailed them to each other along with assorted ephemera. Using 'Graffiti Wall' as our theme, we each went about creating what we wanted...with no restrictions. We did not share what we made until the projects were complete.

I created a triptych called Lost and Found that was inspired by the layers and layers of graffiti that were so prevalent in NYC in the 1980s. Ironic timing for this publication too, given what just occurred at 5 Pointz in NYC. Lost indeed!

Congrats! A close up study showed me the most amazing texture and someone who has a very steady hand to have cut the stenciled letters!
