I had a great time this weekend attending Jane Davies's Scribble Collage class at the Guilford Art Center. We painted and stained papers to our hearts content, then tore them into pieces and created wonderful collages! Here are my creations - work in progress, followed by finished pieces:
I'll be joining Jane and fellow classmate Sharon for Jane's online class Keys to Dynamic Composition starting next week - I am so excited!
I make art for fun and self-expression. I work primarily with abstract collage and painting, most recently small works on paper. I find the order-from-chaos nature of collage, and the free-form, unfettered nature of abstraction both challenging and satisfying. In addition, I occasionally explore the self-portrait. Once I got over the discomfort of looking closely at my own image, I came to enjoy the process, and find wonder in the range of characters that emerge. I live with Randy, my wife of 30 years, and our two cats.
