Suzanne Allen is a retired English teacher who enjoys making mixed media collages.
“When teaching literature, I would bring art into the classrooms that would relate to the subject, but I never took any practical art classes,” she says.
Allen brings her love of children books, toys and history into her artwork — which she says fits the theme of play perfectly.
Working with collage, Allen incorporates photos of her grandchildren, game pieces, quilt patterns and magazine ads from the 1920s and ’30s.
