Carrie Ann is the first artist I've seen that makes similar pieces but using romance novels. She isn't well known all around the world for her work but she is noticed in a few places. When I seen her work it made me want to pursue my idea and see what I could create. Her work made me excited and inspired to see what I could produce with my own ideas. Her work was the first thing that made me realize what my idea was and put it into context and realization what and how I was going to do it.
Her work is amazing and inspiring. She creates different types of elegant and sophisticated dresses that are made out of book pages from romance novels. She uses a variety of techniques to create her dresses but she tends to layer her pieces to create pattern and texture which is what I'm going to use when I create mine.
