Published In Somerset Studio Gallery

What a nice surprise when I came home yesterday to find my complimentary issue of Somerset Studio Gallery in the mail.
I have a couple of projects in this issue. The one below is a collage I made on a small canvas using vintage photo slides. This piece measures 5"x7".
The second project is a Santos doll. I stamped the Santos image on burlap fabric and sewed the sides up, stuffed it and embellished the doll. She's sitting on a wooden spool held up by a chopstick.
This is a really good issue, lots of great projects. A couple of my favorite artists are in this magazine: Lisa Super & Nancy Gene Armstrong.

There's also a great article by Chris Capista. I was recently introduced to her through email. Chris, Catherine Moore, my sister Lana and I are collaborating on an upcoming project. More to come on that in December.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Oops...sorry, I did know now that I think about it...not that it really matters.

  7. What a dummy I am, I really should proof my comments before I leave them. In my last comment when I said "not that it really matters" I meant I almost didn't correct my first comment but decided to anyway...NOT that being in Gallery doesn't matter. I heart Stampington so I wanted to make that clear :) I SO should be at the grocery store right now....
