Sweet Souvenirs by DianneHoffman
Sweet Souvenirs
Tiny Valentine Series
2015 mixed media assemblage -Sold
9” x 6.5” x 2
I wrote the circling poem by cutting out and arranging word phrases from several different love poems"
"Magical in the light
you will give me those
sweet souvenirs
your voice
your dream
your kisses
all the pleasures
such treasures
We have in our eyes
mysterious love
a celebration
on an endless 
because like the sea
I kissed you
and will see you
for the first time
without measure"


DianneHoffman's Profile Picture
Artist | Traditional Art
United States
I have a tendency to personify inanimate objects and feel genuine compassion for those that are damaged or disregarded. I see potential in broken bits and find beauty in rust and erosion. The older an object, the more haunting and alluring its ghost. Collage & assemblage art allows me to indulge these concepts by creating small worlds in a box where tall tales are told, jokes are cracked, emotions stirred, poems imparted and songs are sung.

By using images that replicate the past and objects that authenticate it, my pieces become storytellers, dream interpreters and memory inducers. They are innately lyrical and flicker along to their own silent film. Their dimensional nature and design intend for you to raise an eyebrow and lean in for a closer look.
