Tracking my style...

My first attempt at portrait collage inspired by Misti Mawn and Kelli Rae Roberts'

2008 still have those eyes closed!

Below are a few years worth of glimpses from my journal pages as I found my style and worked out the details. What medium to use, what technique, what faces I did and did not like, trial trial trial and a lot of magazine and book lessons later...

trying different faces

 MY STYLE! begins to emerge...I love the look of a face that is not happy or sad but pondering, Love to do front profiles and tend to go to short hair. I am now using so many different mediums and have learned so much.
