Ok, so I have this hobby, I make collages.

It all started with the birth of my daughter - or to be more exact - the knowledge of that my husband and I were having a girl. So I wanted to make a painting for her, and I had recently been in New Orleans were I had been inspired by this woman who made these wonderful art pieces using paper scraps. So I made this painting with hundreds and hundreds of punched out paper scraps and turned it into this "tree of life" with messegas like "Play", "Run" and "Laugh". I love the way it turned out, but decided to never embark upon such a humungous project ever again (I made that promise many times but never seem to be able to keep it ;) So instead I make these smaller paintings -stil candy for the eye - in the same spirit and technique, but with less forest glued to it ;) At the moment I have these collages for sale. They come in different sizes and colors.
