Studio Update: Current Project and Upcoming Exhibit

Leisure Day by collage artist Megan Coyle
Things have been pretty quiet on my blog. This month I’ve been hard at work getting ready for my solo exhibition in Jasper, IN. At the end of April I'm making the trek over to Indiana to deliver nearly forty of my collages for the May exhibition. I'll also run my first-ever collage workshop at the Jasper Arts Center. I’m planning to review a brief history of collage as an art form with attendees and then focus on making a few small collage projects.

And lastly, I keep mentioning that I’m working on my first children’s book (writing and illustrating it). Just yesterday I finished the last illustration for the project, however I'll need to go back in and edit a few of the pieces before I can really call them "complete." Overall, it should take me a month or so to finish editing and planning the layout for the book. And once I put together the layout for the cover, I’ll post it here so you can get a glimpse of the main characters.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!

Hey talented and pretty Lady!
Hope that you are well and busy creating!
It's been super duper busy around here with my move to Charlotte, NC. It's on and popping if you know what I mean. Anyway, I love your fabulous collage. It's beautiful. Love those greens and purples all there together. Great work.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs
