Sometimes she sets out with a few photos, images or ideas in mind. At other times,she starts without much of an idea. She thinks about the paper and the textures. She choses a color; maybe apply it as a glaze. She also likes to paint thickly and scrape paint off or wipe it away. She works in layers of a variety of elements. Images and scenes often appear in the process and she allows that to happen or she googles images and symbols and follow the surfing process to get more information. Sometimes she uses her own photos and either paints them or collages the printed paper- which she can then tear or glaze over or cut out neatly around an edge or contour. She's interested in ways to make a picture and create a story.
Visit the OZLAND Art Gallery during the month of March to view these wonderful collages.
