Not An Amateur: Mixed Media Collage

Mr. Lestrade crossed his arms, looking sullen. “I suppose there’s nothing you can tell us. Well, it is a very vexing case. If even us professionals are puzzled by it, I wouldn’t wonder but what an amateur would be stumped.”

The sudden patronizing tone from Mr. Lestrade surprised me. I glanced at Holmes, who looked suspiciously as if she were trying to keep a straight face.

“My dear Inspector,” she said, “you’re quite right. An amateur would be terribly stumped. Fortunately for you, I am not an amateur.”

With cool confidence and a hint of sass, this vibrant mixed media collage is a reminder that people should never underestimate you. Its central image, a Victorian woman with book in hand and eyes that see right through any and all bullshit, is enhanced with a touch of glitter, vintage florals, and five acrylic gems.
