Collecting vintage goods and incorporating them into art has become one of my favorite creative endeavors. Assemblage Art, Mixed Media Assemblage, Altered Art, Junk art… so many names I can hardly decide which fits them best, so for now I’ll just refer to them as assemblage art boxes.
I have been completing about one a week since 2016 began. I feel like I am finally putting every single bit of my studio to use. I’ve been experimenting with new products such as adhesives and modeling paste, and I’m using power tools I’d been neglecting to try in my craft projects. I really enjoy the resourcing of pieces in shops and digs, the planning of multiple layers within each, and how the overall composition of a piece comes together magically, and with much patience.
Below are my most current pieces, (previous ones can be found here.) I plan to have them all for sale soon. I’d love to know what you think!
