Mail Art: Halona Hilbertz to Kim Dawn, Jan. 1, 2011

These collages employ a photograph taken of my son by Birgit Krippner, gifted photographer & friend in New Zealand ( specific photo is very dear to me. My collages have to do with observing how a baby starts making sense of his or her senses...and started with the pink paper I chose in response to the sensuality I saw in Kim Dawn's "Here I go" watercolor, shown in the previous blog (note eye and mouth in Kim's piece!).

New Mini Series! - Mail Art: Kim Dawn to Halona Hilbertz, Dec. 2010

Kim Dawn, a wonderful artist & friend I met years ago at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, asked if I wanted to repeat something we did when we moved apart: send Mail Art to each other. I love the surprising, impromptu back and forth of such an exchange; observing how the other's art informs one's own; having fun sending little pieces on their first travels. I asked Kim in turn if I could post the outcome on my blog...and here goes with Kim's first mail to me!
