I am happy to announce the return of First Friday Open Studio sessions at Suzanne’s Studio this spring.
Please join me for community session...
The SoulCollage® process began in the late 1980’s, as part of a culminating project by Seena Frost (1932-2016). What began as a stack of index cards with an archetype and a Haiku soon became a growing and evolving collection of collaged cards that encompassed her family, friends, special places, beloved teachers, and honored pets.
From the SoulCollage® website:
“SoulCollage® is a creative and satisfying collage process. You make your own deck of cards – each collage card representing one aspect of your personality or Soul. Use the collage cards intuitively to answer life’s questions and participate in self-discovery. Joyfully deepen your understanding of the relationships between your personality parts, you and your family/community/world, and you and your dreams, symbols, and Spirit. The book, SoulCollage® Evolving (by Seena Frost), tells how to make and use the SoulCollage® cards individually and in groups.”

I have turned to collage countless times over the years. When I want to find new insight into my life, when I need to make an important decision, when I am in the midst of great change or transition, I pull out my old magazines, scissors and glue sticks and let my inner knower take the driver’s seat.
Several years ago, when I began to share collage as a process in my studio, some of my students asked me if what I was offering was SoulCollage®. I had no idea what that was, but just hearing the term resonated with me very deeply. In 2014, I travelled to Charlotte, NC to take facilitator’s training with Catherine Anderson. Catherine became a SoulCollage® Facilitator Trainer under the tutelage of Seena Frost, the creator of the SoulCollage® technique. Later that same year, I had the good fortunate to travel to California to study SoulCollage® further with Seena Frost and Mariabruna Sirabella. In 2019 I took additional facilitator training with Catherine Anderson.
I felt at home the moment I began to create my first
SoulCollage® card. This method combines many of the paradigms that I have studied separately, and is uniquely personal to the creator. I bow to Seena Frost and Catherine Anderson, and I gratefully acknowledge the artists, photographers, and their subjects that find their way into the collages of mine and the participants in my workshops.
