Inspiration comes in bits and pieces to Clovis, Calif.-based artist Nancy Youdelman.
Her mixed-media work is laden with carefully selected found objectsâ€”items like buttons, twigs and a collection of 300 vintage photographs Youdelman purchased on eBayâ€”the pieces of which hold stories and secrets of their own.
â€śEver since I was in high school, I collected Victorian stuff,â€ť Youdelman, who sees the artifacts as â€śa connection to the past,â€ť tells SFR. â€śThereâ€™s something about old lace and photographs that is exciting and just stuck with me.â€ť
â€śExpect to be surprised,â€ť she advances. â€śI hope people will find something unexpected; hopefully, theyâ€™ll look at it and go away thinking about it and feel somehow uplifted.â€ť
