fiber art and mixed media

This ongoing series of small collage portraits started in 2001, when I discovered that I had a lot of stamps depicting famous people. It has in the meantime grown to a total of 353 pieces and will continue to to grow as long as I find ‘new’ celebrity stamps that speak to me.

The actual size is approximately 20x15 cm (8”x6”), mounted on Bristol paper.
