These creations begin with ripping or cutting decorative papers, commercially produced or ones that I create myself. The pieces are pasted onto a 5” x 7” or 4” x 6 “ piece of card stock or larger 11” x 14” watercolor paper. Once the pieces are glued down, I create the women around them with pen and ink, adding watercolor and/or beads, sequins, and other bling. That is why the female forms are out of real life proportion, twisted, dancing, singing, and basically enjoying life in their space….whatever space is left over. They do have an attitude! They are quite sassy.
The SASSY images are also available as cards!
