Butterfly Effect 3 is a hand-cut collage with mixed media, 15 x 12 inches in size. The substrate is a vintage atlas cover, and I used a world map for the bottom layer for the collage. Other materials include vintage map and book pages, an old engineering school blueprint, a luna moth wing I made from a map along with one I painted, and hand stitching. You may or may not know that the term “butterfly effect” refers to the delicately interconnected balance of everything in the universe. You can read more about that on this previous post.
“Art has always been the raft onto which we climb to save our sanity…” ~ Dorothea Tanning
However, throughout this writing lapse, I have continued to make art. To put it simply, making art is the only thing that seems to keep me sane in these crazy times. So this post is a quick update to let you know that I’m still here, and show you a bit of what I’ve been doing.

Time’s Up, detail
My new collage, Time’s Up, is part of the “Ordinary Goddesses” series, which explores the roles and treatment of women in society. Click here to read more about this series and how it began. This is one of three pieces of my work included in the SOS Art 2022: Art for Peace and Justice. This is the 5th year I’ve participated in this hugely inspiring exhibition featuring over 100 artists using art as expressions for peace and social change. Watch the video below to find out more about this nonprofit organization and their many wonderful projects.

Erasure (The Pink Dress 2)
That’s it for now, but I have new finished work to share, and I’ll be back soon with more WIP’s and updates.
In the meantime, I wish you peace, love, and art…
