Art of Rubbish video recap

Working at the "Rubbish" event.      To see something of the Art of Rubbish event on video, scroll to  22:10 in Aurora's News Weekly... the segment includes interview moments featuring me,janiceinterviewartists Brenda Stumpf and Lily Erb, Art in Public Places coordinator Mary Koernig, and a cameo from Ken Elliott. I think I said more interesting things in the course of my five minute interview but here's what remained after editing!It was a really fun day and great to have it captured on video and promoted by the city. Hopefully there will be a repeat performance next year with more artists involved and an even larger community turnout. 

Passionate people profile: who, me?!

Janice_McDonaldWEBI'm honored to be featured in life coach Ruth Davis' blog about Passionate People this month. Check it out... an interview including all kinds of things you may not know about me, especially how I acquired and maintain my collage habit! (Thanks, Ruth!) 

The accompanying portrait was taken in front of one of my large and early works, "Yellow Rising,"  a 36 x 24" contemporary paper collage on wood panel, a piece I considered pivotal and kept as part of my personal collection. 

The collage work that illustrates the article is representative of several different series, plus commissioned work -- more of all is available to view on my website.
