Mestiza. I ended up making a t-shirt out of this using the worst, cheapest iron-on transfer ever made. I did it on an olive green shirt to cover up a stain.The cheapness of the transfer makes it look very washed out. I get nothing but compliments when I wear it.
Here's a self-portrait I did for the final emBODYment project that Melissa Chapin is putting together. It's going to be a large color-copied compilation of work from emBODYment artists who wanted to participate. Ilike the self-portrait.

This is an onionskin encyclopedia page stamped w/a penscore impression of a background stamp. The "windows" are ink on compressed sponges. The picture is from a book of saints.
Guilty. Caran D'Ache and Prismacolor pencil scribbles with the guilty pie lady collaged over.
Rustling. I scanned these as a group, so I don't know if it will work. This was for a Business Card Swap that Bernie Berlin did through Arts Erratica, I think? I didn't really understand the assignment--or I just interpreted itdifferently. I did an original for each piece. I think people thought mine were strange. I liked them.
Woman Hand ATC: Stamped and DTP background. Woman and blurry hand collaged on stamped and gold foiled cs background.

KelleyBaby. First page of an emBODYment Layout.
August Collage, done on paper bags
August Collage 2
I'm working on a series of collages right now done on paper bags with meltedcrayon as the first  background. I build from there with a layer of  tissue paper ironed on (Talbot-style) with polymer medium. After applying and"burning" fluid acrylics and other paints (for texture), I  iron on the collage pieces in layers. I'm really jazzed about canvas paper right now and how it takes the fluid acrylics and the polymer medium.

Mesmerizing patterns and jewel like colour flow from Judy's mind in a free spirit of adventure. Experimenting with her materials and techniques in a spontaneous way leads her on to new ideas and projects
"I started branching out of rubber stamping and cardmaking about 8 years ago and began experimenting wildly with collage, ATC's, altered books, painting, drawing, assemblage, art journals, and whatever else strikes my fancy. I started as a singer before branching out into acting and writing. I was afraid to do visual art, initially, because I was afraid of being judged. Fear, I believe, is the death of creativity.
I cut my artistic teeth by doing swaps and round robins, which provided deadlines, and an internet community of artists at all stages of development. I have learned by looking at the work of other artists, which is incredibly inspiring, and by experimenting with techniques that I pick up on the internet, on television, and in the hundreds of books and magazines that I devour. As an untrained artist,
I am unconstrained by rules. I always listen to music and often sing while I work, so my art is truly a synergy of the sounds I am hearing, the sounds I am making and the emotional places I visit while I do art. My son, Emiliano, is an extremely talented hip-hop writer, singer and producer and I now listen to his music as I create, which is a very full-circle experience. Both he and my partner, Herb, have been enthusiastic appreciators of my work over the years and have encouraged me in all my artistic endeavors.
I must credit art-e-zine with being a huge inspiration. I don't believe there is a more beautifully lush or wild or gigantic website in the world. Gillian's talent is enormous and her generosity in support of artists is truly amazing."
