On our trip to San Francisco, the concierge gave me a brochure for a spa. I wasn't interested the spa, but I loved the brochure. The paper was strong and full of muted tones, so I decided to use it as a canvas and draw on it. Since it was "scrap" paper, I felt like I had a lot of freedom to play around with my drawings, not worrying about the outcome. As I started to draw, I started to play and it was fun and playful. Allie saw my work and said, "Ha, it's hidden art". I liked that name so I kept it. Now, I look at paper packaging and junk mail in a new light. It's a chance for hidden art!
