Claudine Hellmuth's Mixed-Media Collages!
I have been a lover of old maps and vintage atlases since my kind mum bought me an old, thumbed world atlas from a charity shop a couple of years ago. It was the quirky combination of mixed-media papers, photos, maps, paints and drawing based techniques that instantly captured my attention. Her vintage collages contain iconic imagery from victorian types of travel to the Eiffel Tower combined with bold key dates. Claudine's work has provided a rich source of inspiration for my students, so I thought I would share some of my favourite designs with you today.
