Painted paper collage
5" x 5" on board
“Serendipity and surprises about sums up my collage work. My process is very spontaneous starting with acrylic paints and paper, and a mood. Recently, I’ve been enchanted by golden colors ranging from bright yellows to somber browns and sparkling bursts of orange and red. The energy of brush and pallet knife strokes adds to the story that is revealed by the collage.
My collage work is abstract in style but I always seem to find a landscape looking back at me. It makes so much sense since I love to be outdoors and have always been deeply inspired by nature. I’m especially fond of sunrises and sunsets, and all manifestation of sky.”
