SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE NEW "PORTALS" BODY OF WORK!
The Katrina Collection is a series of mixed media assemblages which incorporate storm debris from Hurricanes Katrina and Gustav. There are approximately 1000 pieces in the collection to date, so most of the pieces are in the archives, located on the right hand side of the poage-just scroll down a little bit.
Chinese Landscape was a piece that I started before Katrina, took with me when I evacuated, and finally finished a couple of months ago. I often seek out Chinatowns in my travels, because I love the sights, sound and smells (oh, that lovely dim sum!) of these enclaves. It was made with handmade papers, chopsticks, Chinese coins, Chinese newspapers, organic materials and a salvaged picture frame.
