Still new to the art scene I'm having separation anxiety. As silly as it sounds it's happening.
You put so much love, excitement and care into each piece. Some get more love than others. This piece pictured above on records in one of those pieces that was loved just a bit more than my other recent pieces. It is not just assembly line production. There is a part of me in each piece. I create art that makes me happy with hopes of bringing a smile to others which is why I create.
Does my separation anxiety go away as time goes by and I sell more art? Or will I become a hoarder and starving artist all in one fell swoop?
Only time will tell................
You'll probably get the answer if I can't find my computer one day from hoarding and the blog posts stop. If that happens please send art collectors to my door!

I'm obsessed with paper art. So much that I taught it to my students. I started making my paper doll shadow boxes back in October of 2011. I was creating paper dolls inspired by my whimsical kooky characters and just wanted more. Sure paper dolls are fun but they lack adventure. Which inspired me to create my shadow boxes in which my paper dolls command the scene. Each main character moveable and poseable so the scene is always changing and the viewer is in control and actually asked to touch the art a taboo act in the art world.
While making my shadow boxes I became curious about the world of paper art. It was something I had never looked into before and there are some crazy talented paper artists in this world. I stumbled upon the book PUSH by Jamie Zollars. Jamie Zollars also has a blog soley dedicated to paper http://paperforest.blogspot.com/ which will not take such a hit on your wallet and you can view many of the same artist featured in PUSH.
Peter Callesen my favorite is unbelieveable he turns a boring white single sheet of paper into a masterpiece. Whether it be a skeleton sitting on a chair, a humming bird flying closely over a flower or a detailed castle with fallen bricks they are all individually amazing.
