The Constant Gatherer

One of my favorite and earliest influences, artist, Lynn Whipple has a shiny new website and blog. I remember first learning about her work in Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion years ago (I still have the article in my inspiration notebook) and it opened my eyes to new possibilities for mixed media. Her use of vintage photographs, doll clothes and found objects was different, more relaxed, whimsical and even somewhat mischievous in its use and that spoke to me more that any textbook assemblage artist I had known. Thank you, Lynn! 
 "I am deeply grateful to live my life as an artist. Play and discovery are my dearest and most constant companions.  There are a zillion tiny challenges in each art making experience, and so often I find, just as many small, sweet victories. Without a doubt, living creatively is the most enjoyable and satisfying game I know."- Lynn Whipple
