If you have wondered where I've been...

Well...I have been opening up shop! A paper shop that is! This is something that I have thought about for years but never found the right opportunity. I am starting small, mainly just online and through local markets, but if everything goes as planned, an actual physical shop might be in the works! Right now, trying to network, sell a bit at different locations around town and get the word out. I am feeling pretty good about it so far even though I have only been open for 3 weeks! Would appreciate any feedback I can get! If you know about any paper products that would be an asset to my shop, would love to hear about it!

Super Star!

15 cm paper collage
on epla

I see after making these blog posts that my paper collages all have a similar pallette. This is mainly because I use what is laying on my desk at the time. I admire artists who have a broad range of color, i find this extremely difficult! Green? How the heck do I use that? Orange? scary.

Also been putting in hours working on my SURPRISE. Might have to reveal sooner rather than later. :)

15 cm paper

Some more paper collage. Trying to produce one a day but even that is proving to be difficult! Working on my "surprise" but feel that I have to take a break once in awhile...

You can see this one and others here...

15 cm paper collage

Yea, I know, looks like I never blog, that I never do any picture making or the like, but the truth is, I've got lots of exciting things going on. I mean something REALLY exciting that requires lots of work. Are you dying here? Well, you should be! I will let you in on the big happening after summer. :)

Anyway, in the meantime, I do sit down for an hour or two here and there and have some creative time, because i really need that. Here is a little paper piece listed in epla. See that these are somewhat popular, so I will stick with this size for awhile.

more later...hopefully not to long...

Reach Out

The sun is starting to make an appearance and my creativity is starting to blossom too. Telling myself that I should really get back in to the creative side of things, see that I am much more happier when creating something. Also gives me a rush when someone actually buys something too!

This piece I just listed in my epla store...

Back to my roots

15 cm square
collage on old bookcover

So happy to go back to paper collage. Many fellow collage artists have said that you will eventually get tired of "conventional" collage and go to making assemblages. This has not happened. Even though my time in the studio is very limited these days, I find that working with paper is what gives me the most satisfaction. I find that the smallest bit of scrap or color combination is all I need to get a piece started.

The piece above started after I deconstructed an unsuccessful canvas work. I like the mixture of paint and stitching together with the small ration tickets (these tickets were used in Norway during WWII. I purchased these from a man who remembered having to use them to buy everything from sugar to clothing. These particular ones were used for shoes).

This piece has been listed in my epla store. Outside of Norway? Contact me, and I will send you price info.

more to come...
