From the Artist…

A friend of my family recently went on a trip to Italy and fell in love with the country. I was asked to create a collage as a surprise to her to capture her experience. I wanted to highlight the different places that she'd gone and only had 8x8 inches of paper to do so. I was given a handful of small cardboard boxes (that had held chocolates) which depicted famous buildings she had visited. They were my inspirations for the piece. It was daunting at times and I wasn't sure if I would be pleased with the outcome. I am proud to say I like how it turned out! The colors are joyful, symbolizing the exciting time my client had in the beautiful land. I was able to add the different locations in a way that made the work seem like a memory caught on paper.
