C IS FOR COLLAGE

C is for collage.  "Collage (from the Frenchcoller, "to glue";[1] French pronunciation: ​[kɔ.laːʒ]) is a technique of an art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole." (Wikipedia)

Me in a hotel in Paris, circa 2014, decoupaging a sheet of blog cards to leave in random places in France.

Afro Jazz is a collage style that is known by its prominent use of African textiles.  It wouldn't be Afro Jazz without the rich textures that fabric from the motherland contributes.  

Currently, all Afro Jazz art pieces feature a person and the textiles represent their hair.  Someone that I know personally.  But soon the landscape of my pieces will change as I experiment with other subjects, objects and expand what the textiles can represent.

I hope to have a new piece finished in the next few days to show you the exciting direction things are taking!
