I consider myself both and tissue paper collage artist and a photographer! I love both mediums. Herein you will find a sample of both of my artistic pursuits.
I enjoy viewing the artworks of others. I feel inspired by such amazing and prolific creative talent that grows out of the human race.
I like that my tissue paper collage art is happy art. I want to celebrate the age of childhood with images that speak so well of childhood.
My credos is that art should not be totally representative of realistic images.
Part of the allure of being an artist and viewing art is we get to experience the fantastic that arises from creativity. What a viewer sees can be purely of the artists creation which transports them to the mindset of the artist.
My influences and inspirations are as varied as night and day. All things in nature; trees, clouds, birds, falling leaves, bees and butterflies and worms, truly the list is infinite are all open to my creative inspiration and interpretation. Children's literature also influences my collage art, poems especially can get my thoughts to wondering and turning to images in my mind, precisely what poetry is meant to do! From my mind to the canvas, the journey as an artist is always exciting and unpredictable.
I do hope you enjoy my artwork and stay awhile to visit and experience my artistic adventures!
