When I kept noticing artists posting their collage for 'Art vs Artist' on Instagram I kept thinking of what I would choose as my images and this is what I've decided. I knew I had to include my 100 Days Nasty Women project (top right) which was a bit of an offshoot of the 52 WEEKS::Heroes (top left). The bees have been important to me to draw attention to their plight and their importance to us, plus I love watching them in my garden. Canoes represent my childhood and the initial huge shift in my artwork and the fashion plate is a part of my current body of work. The hearts represent Valentines and the nest as the most abstract of my work and another current project and the landscape comes from the small plein air paintings I've been playing with the past couple of years. It was difficult to narrow it down to these because there are also the flowers, tipis, animals, cabins, altered books and carvings but I think these are the ones that have helped me grow the most creatively and are kind of where my head is at the moment. It will be interesting to see where the year ahead leads.
