Holy wow. Those are lovely! Just making those would be meditative - all that snipping and placing. Thanks for posting this!

I once cut up a Bible for a collage and felt a kind of thrill from it. Of course, what I did wasn't half as amazing as this, but still, it's pretty incredible to be using material that's seen as sacred.

I have recently started fooling around with collage work. This is equal parts intimidating and inspiring.

She opened up her studio for Bushwick Open Studios in 2011. It's like two blocks from where I live.

Her stuff was beyond awesome and she was extremely friendly and open. Glad to see her work on the blue.
