Joseph Cornell, Turner, Greg Constantine, Mary Ryden, Magritte, Sir John Tenniel, Kay Nielsen, Arthur Rackham, Chuck Jones and the rest of the Termite Terrace, Jeff Smith, Edmund Dulac, Henry Darger, too many more.
Altered shadow boxes, shrines, 4x6 collages, doll furniture--unusual stuff.
ATCs were supposed to be a way for me to learn various techniques that I could apply to larger assemblages, but they're like poems or haikus--the strict parameters mean you have to really stretch your imagination. Yoga for thinking.
Until I change it: Question authority.

I'm Karen, I live in Natick. I was almost at the point where my crafting simply consisted of buying stuff, so I needed to be in a creative atmosphere. This is perfect.
Warm, wonderful, welcome creative people.
