THE SECRET ART OF LISA YOUNT. I’ve been cutting out pictures from magazines, calendars, and whatever other sources I could lay my hands on since I was about four years old. Not too many years after that, I started combining them and pasting the results into scrapbook pages. I’ve continued those activities in (I hope) a more sophisticated way in recent years, primarily for my own enjoyment. I’ve often displayed my digital collages, but I am showing these physical paste-ups here for the first time. I hope you enjoy them!
