I love doing self portraits. I made this piece by connecting some 4" x 6" postcards with beads and wire. I over-painted photos from kindergarten through last year and alternated them with abstract versions of myself. I used mostly oil pastels over photos printed on Avery cotton. And the exciting news is that I am going to have a series of nine self-portraits in a new book called "Mixed-media Selfportraits" by Cate Prato, which is due out in July.
