Years ago, an intrepid band of geishas left their sequestered life and set out to explore the world. Travels with the Geisha is an original collaged “travel album” documenting the world travels of that plucky little group. In addition to the collaged “faux-toe” pages, the book includes various travel souvenirs (an altered vintage passport, old tickets, postcards and other ephemera) tucked into pockets inside the front cover.
Artist BioLynn lives and works in the tiny town of La Conner in the far Northwest corner of the US. After retiring from the practice of law ten years ago, she began making artist’s books and small works on paper. Old-style cut & paste collage has been and remains a favorite medium, and she frequently also incorporates sewing techniques, thread, fabric, metal, wood and other materials into her pieces. The goal is always to tell a story that might startle, amuse or provoke. Lynn's work has appeared in book arts and collage exhibitions across the country, in books and magazines, and is included in many public and private collections across the country.
