Midcentury Modern? What about Midcentury Piggies? Fun and colourful, 'This Little Piggy went to Market' - #4' is one of a new series of 8 individually sold, colourful midcentury modern, black and white fashionistas with their accompanying pig pal. Celebrating the fabulous midcentury fashion aesthetic and design. Mounted on a cream 240 gsm artist paper and collaged with individually hand cut and repurposed vintage fashion magazines, books and other vintage papers. This series of artworks are framed in a 40cm x 50cm lightweight minimal black wood frame with heavy weight black acid free mount. 'This Little Piggy went to Market' - #4 - is complete with d-rings and nylon cord and ready to hang.

Although I finished my fine arts bachelors degree with a painting major , I embraced a more intimate and personal process which I find with collage, mixed media encompassing at times needlework and collage and small reworked domestic items.

Collage especially allows this reworking and pastiche to make a new story or 'paint' a new picture. I adore the process and opportunities that collage allows and embrace using and recycling vintage papers and magazines - currently vintage French fashion magazines and discarded books from the 1950's and 60's - the ephemeral and the discarded. That which is fleeting/ passing and impermanent and giving new life and form - a new story.
