Costa Rica Song

I wanna leave this place yeah to never be found
I wanna leave my old life far behind
Can I lose my name, be someone new
And I’ll throw my trouble deep in the wild blue

Let’s leave too me and you babe
Let’s go to Costa Rica
Let’s leave to me and you babe
Let’s go to Costa Rica

The ephemera: Natural history illustration of a toucan, vintage map of Costa Rica, vintage postcard palmtrees.

DAUGHETER’S DENDRITES: digital collage

Zoé Portejoie….tu nous apportes de la joie,,,mais ce n’est pas du tout à cause de ta beauté éblouissante…mais non, c’est surtout à cause de ton esprit généreux, de ton coeur tendre et de tes pensées réfléchies.

STAMPED: ALTERED PORTRAIT

Her experiences were stamped on her face as if they had been written there for all to see.

She wears each wrinkle and each imperfection proudly, like badges of honour.

The ephemera: vintage photo, handwritten French letter from the 1800s, vintage botanical drawing of seaweed, vintage French envelope with stamps and postmarks.

This is a departure for me in both subject matter and technique. More altered portraits to come.
