5 x 5 Excitement!

I am so excited to have my work featured on Seth Apter's blog The Altered Page today as part of his 5x5 project!

Seth put a call out the the mixed media art community to contribute pieces for this project, and the submissions are unbelievable! If you would like to check out the previous weeks submissions, click here and here. I am so honored to have my work included alongside these talented artists.

Seth is the author of The Pulse of Mixed Media. Here is his description of the 5x5 project:

The Pulse of Mixed Media presented the results of a survey in which contributing artists were asked questions that they had to answer with words or provided with prompts that they had to respond to by creating art. These ideas were combined in the 5x5 Pulse Project. I put out an open call for artists to submit artwork created in response to one or more of the following questions that were part of the original book:

1. If your artwork could talk, what would it say?

2. Who has had the most impact on your creative life?

3. What is one thing you have never shared with the creative community?

Submitting artists could chose 1, 2, or all 3 of the questions and respond to each by creating artwork in any medium in the form of a 5" x 5" square. They were asked to include words as a part of their artwork as well. There was a tremendous response to this call and I will be posting each submission every Sunday throughout the months of November and December.

Thanks Seth for encouraging the mixed media art community! And to anyone reading, I have a copy of the piece that I submitted to 5x5 ready to mail out to the first person who emails their mailing address to sonicjoy at! Thanks for reading :)
