I dip in and out of collage as a quilt making techinque and I am always surprised that there are so many different ways to collage a textile piece.
So when the theme of collage popped up I thought : Yes! I've got this... and then I thought what can I make that's not the same as all of the above? I got stuck!
Then, the opportunity came to sign up for a collage portrait class, with Paula Rafferty, at the River of Dreams annual exhibiton in Limerick and I jumped at the chance. We made a portrait of Dolores O'Riordan from the Cranberries, also from Limerick, and I had the opportunity so many times to hear her sing and the band play as I was growing up, when they were starting our on their amazing music journey.
