From their website: “In the art world, pastiche refers to a style that imitates another type of work and is usually meant to be flattering rather than a knock-off. A pastiche can be a collage or patchwork of images where the whole is more than the sum of its parts. Your body is a collage, or a pastiche, of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components. These components are interconnected. You cannot achieve health by addressing only one part of the whole; optimal health and wellness is achieved when all of these components perform in concert.”
I will be exhibiting with two very unique and talented artists, Kathy Marks (#29) and Karen Tillison (#31).
Kathy Marks is a creative and uniquely gifted sculptor who works in mixed media using found and repurposed objects to create amazing pieces, each with so much interesting detail you have to spend some time on each piece to appreciate all of the intricacies of her designs.
From her website: “I combine found and re-purposed objects into subtle, delicate and inspiring compositions. Texture, color and contrast captivate me. The overlooked fragments I gather together tell a story. My work conveys a reflective calmness, often laced with gentle humor, and has been described as “Zen” in nature.
The small details and intricacies invite the viewer to slow down and take the journey with me. Each piece is meditative in nature, and the resulting works reveal dedication and mindfulness.”
Just look at the detail…
“Barb Wire” -Kathy Marks
Karen Tillison is a fine art photographer who has traveled the world photographing landscape scenery, people and wildlife:
Wow, what amazing adventures she’s had!
I cannot wait to get to know these two women better and enjoy three days of art at Sierra Art Trails 2016. Our advertisement:

One of my favorite flowers here in the Sierra Nevada is the Harlequin Lupine (Lupinus stiversii). It is slightly rare to see it and when you do, it is always a treat – like finding candy or bubblegum. I attempted to create a necklace resembling this beautiful wildflower.
Although difficult to locate the exact colors, I hand-wove these flower and leaf charms using Czech glass beads and assembled necklace using wood jasper and antiqued brass findings. Below is my image of real harlequin lupine flowers:
This necklace will be one of the items on exhibit at the 14th annual Sierra Art Trails in Oakhurst, California, September 30-October 2, 10-6, where Julia Bristow Jewelry will be exhibiting as artist #30 at Class, The Body Pastiche Studio, with artist #29, Kathy Marks, and artist #31, Karen Tillison.
Hope to see you there!
My last three remaining loom beaded guitar straps are all listed on special Ebay auction starting at a very low price for seven days only! I have only three guitar straps left in stock and not taking any more orders for these currently. My guitar straps were featured in Vintage Guitar Magazine and sold at Norman’s Rare Guitars in Los Angeles.
This one has very tiny size #13 seed beads and took quite a bit of time to make.
