Expressing your hobbies and passions through collage
The sea and its endless horizon. Jade beads. Sea glass. Eucalyptus leaves. Reading/Books, and a map Cuba (to remind her of her honeymoon) Her favourite colours were: Coral and Blush pink, turquoise, navy blue, sea blues and greens.
I had a surprise 50th birthday portrait collage made by Emma, and I can honestly say it’s the most beautiful gift I’ve ever received. The care, research and attention to detail that went into it is just so moving. Generations of the past would have had their portraits painted, then it was photography. This is the next level: it’s ‘found’ photography, it’s a painting, it’s a collage of all the things that make me, me! Every time I look at it, I feel emotional. I feel I’m totally good enough at being uniquely me. Thank you so much Emma – I think you should have a tagline: Art as therapy!Vanessa Dell
