I’ve always been a collage artist, but my collages became a more serious and passionate endeavor while I was making my documentary “Hunter’s Thunder” (working title) about real-life serendipity that led to an unlikely, deep, and healing friendship that uncovers a long silenced secret and explores and celebrates how women heal and hold one another up.
By entering into the world of the collage and the stories that grew out of those imaginings, my collages became one of the tools used in my film to facilitate healing, creating a vision, safe and beautiful, exciting, sensual, full of life, color, and joy and… “Storyboards by Melora Hardin” wallpaper was born. We can customize, colorize and use any portion of the collage you resonate with. You can have the entire collage cover a wall like a mural or choose one or two sections of the collage to have cover walls.
On November 4th, creativity and imagination took center stage as Melora Hardin unveiled her exquisite collection of collages.
