Collage for a Baby

In celebration of my friend Candace who is expecting, I made this collage as a gift for her babyshower this weekend. Candace is a special education k-2 teacher and her and her wife have picked out a gender neutral name without knowing the assigned sex of the baby. 

I focused on a mix of gender neutral bright and earthy tones, and organic and geometric shapes and brought together a bunch of old images I’d been looking forward to using to create a stimulating, bold piece to activate what I know will be an already very intelligent mind. Congratulations!

Personal Project- My Engagement Party

Over the past couple of weeks I put together this lil’ collage for my partner and my engagement party invitations! I wanted to create a scene of us in formal attire in front of a home with enough color and character to capture our spirit. Without a wedding to follow, this year we will be celebrating our forever-engagement with our friends and chosen family! The collage has been printed and DIY invitations assembled in our living room in preparation for the special event.
