I got the idea to look back over my 2011 projects from Hi SugarPlum, a fantastic blog that takes you through Cassie’s DIY adventures.

In a year full of so many blessings it’s fun to do a little time travel.  Every piece I do has a special place in my heart, but this first one I haven’t blogged about yet and the rest got the most attention on my blog.

My favorite piece comes from my first quarter at SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design).  The composition is a section of the still life sculpture in our classroom.  The idea was to convey form and space.  It’s all done with dry mediums, mostly conte crayons.

Keys To The Past

I love the work I do on vintage suitcases and was honored to create a collage featuring my grandmother on the her own suitcase.  This is what she used during her last visit to the hospital.

Peace, Love & BBQ

This piece was a commission for a barbeque restaurant just outside of Savannah.  It’s fun to do a piece for a commercial space… because I can go visit it anytime I want.

Sometimes a Fiddle, Sometimes a Violin

This was a really special piece for me.  The idea came from listening to a song written by the person it was for…

Blanche Dubois…

I made this as a special gift to my “mother-in-love”
