Can't wait to see what you do next.
I've often wondered what you are thinking as you work on these. I hope you do share.


Thank you, Barbara for sharing your work as well as for linking to me (very kind.) Vimeo doesn't work on my phone so I will have to look at these on the laptop. :)


These are STUNNING. I would love to see them when they are finished. Very inspiring. Thank you for sharing!!!


What you see in my collage is a reflection of what's inside of you.

This line is facinating to me!!!
I am in emotional pain at the moment and all i saw was anguish in your pages, because of my intepretation of each page! LOVED your pages, i cant wait for the side by side pages before and after- i love it when Kelly does that!

Barbara Hagerty

I'm sorry for your pain, Andrea, and hope that things get better soon!

The only page in my book that depicts anything close to anguish in my eyes, is the page I called "Birthings". It's the 16th collage, mostly green, and the focal image is close to the top. It's a pic of a woman in labor, so she is in great physical pain in the photo.

Other than that, my personal emotions were mostly hopeful, matter-of-fact, or neutral when creating these pages. Your comment has helped me with a decision I was trying to make regarding whether or not to share my personal thoughts about the pages. I think I will take a page every once in awhile and explain what I was thinking, and what I see when I look at it. I have always hesitated doing this because I don't want to influence what others see. But maybe after this post has been up for a week or so and readers have connected with their own identities through them, I'll share my own connections. Thanks!

What a great array of collages. I look forward to seeing what you add to them and am very interested in seeing your thoughts about them.

Barbara - thanks for posting these all together. You are becoming a master of collage. I remember seeing your work a couple of years ago and you are hmm growing. beautiful work.

Dixie Darr

These are great inspiration and I'm looking forward to hearing more about your thought process while making them. Do you have some favorite magazines for collage images?
