50th Birthday Collage Commission

A recent collage commission for a 50th birthday included a 50p coin from the receivers year of birth; a postcard of Nottingham where she studied; a tape measure, stitches and pins representing her studies in fashion, and her initial. The commissioners for this collage didn’t have a collection of papers already, so instead we worked together to find old items that were relevant to the receiver to make it personal. These items were then combined with ephemera and elements that I have, and that complimented them well.

Once items are sourced and gathered together I always create up a mock up, all paper clipped together to check the buyers are happy. A tweak or two sometimes happens before I get completing the piece. This is the process this collage went through until it was complete . . .
