Double page spread in an altered book (Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography).

Collage: Paper, acrylic glazes, ink, beeswax, stamps, marker pen, stitching, Japanese masking tape, eyelets.

Left-hand page has metal filing brackets attached with brads. In each bracket are two or three miniature playing cards, collaged with early 20th C illustrations by Marguerite Davis, distressed with ink, and laminated.

Right-hand page is cut down to show the pages behind it and also features a Marguerite Davis illustration. Also, white mesh behind cutout windows, with silver charms adhered to the mesh.

Reminds me of a slightly twisted version of Guess Who. I like the vintage feel, remind me of very old animated movies I saw as a child.

You always, always impresses me. You're fantastic. I'm always impressed with the Labour and pampering in your work. I'll always be your fan and always stay an eye on your work. I'm going through a lock in my work related to drawing and collage. I'm producing a lot of scenery and set designs for plays and events, but drawings on loose, not tied to the room decor and I'm well hung. Your work inspires me. Thank you

Oh don't you hate those droughts and fallow periods? I try to trust in the cycle of creativity and not too push the river, but sometimes it's very frustrating ...
