Colleen Attara

"Fascinated by what others leave behind, I sew intimate treasures into a narrative with my words and photographs.  We are woven thread together.  Our stories are a common thread.

I tear pictures in half, change the composition, and stitch them back together.  I sew in my words and all the little bits and pieces that fall to the side of my studio desk or below it. Then I add paint and some vintage finds and let the colorful threads fall where they may."

These pieces are my mixed media collage prints and greeting cards.
