The Collage Workshop Blog






















I've started a new blog to help promote other artists who work in collage. It features a place for artist to share their work, a link to sites that offer downloadable imagery, a place to learn about resources and workshops. It also has a featured artist link. This months featured artist is Stacy Blint. Be sure to check out her work and read the interview. Also sign up to receive updates about new monthly artists interviews, shared collages prompts and more. Updates average one per week. I will also be giving away artwork and copies of my latest book in the coming weeks.

You can take a look at the new site at:
