Muse Showcase - Kris Dickinson

We are thrilled to introduce our October Muse, Kris Dickinson. Kris creates the most incredible vintage collage work and has a particular love of all things vintage Halloween. We have chosen some of our favorite pieces of her artwork to showcase today. We had such a hard time narrowing down to a few projects that we created a slide show of her spooky Halloween projects below - just in time to inspire you for Gothic Month on Gingersnaps.

My name is Kris Dickinson and I am a free-lance artist, specializing in collage and mixed media art. I reside in Parker, CO USA with my husband, Jeff and daughter, Lauren.

Art has always been a part of my life. I did undergraduate work at Bethany College, Lindsborg, KS USA in Fine Art and I have an Associate Degree in Advertising Design from the Art Institute, Denver, CO USA.

I started to scrapbook in 1999 and then moved on to stamping, collage and mixed media art. I teach stamping and collage in my home and I have been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for 6 years. I do a wide variety of styles but my main focus and passion is vintage collage art.

I am a published artist and my work can be found in Take Ten, Stamper's Sampler and Stampington's Holiday and Celebrations Annual publication.

I maintain two art blogs, both devoted to vintage, retro and nostalgic art. 'Nostalgic Collage' is my main blog and 'A Nostalgic Halloween' is my blog that is dedicated to all things vintage Halloween.

I am very pleased to be the October Muse.

All artwork by Kris Dickinson. Enjoy the show!
