Happy Creativity Thursday!

Today, I am celebrating the creative work of Kelly Rae Roberts, an artist, author, and blogger I discovered last year when I was in need of creative inspiration. Kelly’s blog and book, Taking Flight: Inspiration And Techniques To Give Your Creative Spirit Wings, were a breath of fresh air. They helped me move through some major blocks to my creative expression. They reminded me of my joie de vivre for making collages and encouraged me to make wall collages in my work as an artist-in-residence for Smith Center for Healing and the Arts at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Check out several of my wall collages below.

Are you into making collages?

What types of images do you use in your collages?

Happy Creativity Thursday!

Museums are great places to go for creative inspiration. The Brooklyn Museum is one of my favorites!

In December, I visited the Museum to see the Mickalene Thomas’ exhibition. She is one of my favorite artists. Her mixed media paintings and installations set my creative heart on fire. Click here to read about my visit.
