    • She's going to start selling prints! I emailed her to ask. (Her email address is on her website.) She told me she'll let me know once prints are available; if you email her, she'll probably do the same for you.

      • Way to be self-motivated! I'll email her to so OBH can help spread the news.

  2. Cool! This stuff reminds me of the collage work a neighbor of mine does. You can see some here http://paulfrickart.web.officelive.com/default.aspx. I know he used to sell prints, but what's so cool about the originals is that, in this day of photoshop, you can actually look closely and see the lines from where the magazine cut outs were put together.

  3. Love! The sailor in the bathtub! Lost and battling bats in the bedroom! My living room is in a sexy spy aquarium thriller!
