Kim came to visit and brought some of her art journals. Kim is an artist with talents in many areas; most recently she’s been focusing on various styles of journaling. I had seen a couple of her junk journals, but these with her story characters are really exciting!
Kim has stories to go with all her journals. And look at her characters. Aren’t these amazing creatures? I haven’t heard all their stories, but just seeing the various pieces bring delightful possibilities to mind.
Here are the Bodeenses; bunny sisters who live with a human family and try to hide their ears. When in high society, they get nervous and their ears “flop out” at inopportune times. Is this the most delightful children’s story you’ve ever heard, or what? I can’t wait until Kim gets the book finished!
Kim is a master of paper and metal and matting and framing. She wants to add textiles to her art and I know that will just add another level of richness to her work. I have some ideas for her, and she helps me with the non-fiber details of some of my pieces. What fun it is to collaborate and get new ideas!
