I am a physician and have a passion for healing. I started making collages after working on altered books. My husband asked me to make something larger so that we could hang it in our home. My daughters then encouraged me to upload my creations.
The encouragement that I receive online keeps me creating. Knowing my art is being enjoyed keeps me making more. I love that. You are helping the machine of my creation right now. ~Kanchan

    Beautiful balance and hermony, I love to see what the hand cut technique has to offer when photoshop is a technique so commonly used.

  • Thank you Jeff! I understand, I think, I have no “Undo” button for example. And the scale is relatively planned, but not exactly measured. Also I must think of what kind of paper, what kind of glue, what to back the piece with, what to seal it with, if anything, and then storage too!

    I have a whole 4 foot chest of drawers almost filled with my creations. I love to give them away! I do sell some, but I make them at a much higher rate. They are like a litter of kittens. One loves them all, but can’t keep them all. So they are given away to those who will love them too. I will be happy to send you one if you send me your address!

    wow that is such a generous offer, and really with the spirit of creativity, thank you so much. It would be much loved and appreciated and have pride of place in my home. I shall give you my address when on a pc tomorrow, as working redbubble is tricky here on my phone. Thanks so much again!

  • Just pick three or four so that I can make sure I didn’t sell/ give it away. Then I’ll surprise you!
