Thanks to Will and Adela who supplied the raw materials for this collage - a lovely stack of Poultry Monthly and some amazing scrap books from their late Uncle Bill which are too nice to cut up really. Family heirlooms should be kept safe for future generations. Always sad to find old photos at boot sales and charity shops etc. that should be in some family archive.
I try to do a collage every day but sometimes there's not enough time or I'm working on several at once - like in a book or assembling project - so lots of half finished ones knocking about. I did do this one today though.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
