Original Watercolor Torn Paper Collages
Living in Florida I am surrounded by sandy beaches and beautiful blue skies dotted by palm trees. Natural inspirations are all around me. Sometimes, when we give ourselves the opportunity to see simple things in a different way, the results can be pretty incredible. For me, It all begins with color; I mix watercolor, gouache and ink to achieve papers that are saturated with color, some subtle others bold. Once I achieve a “color story” I am inspired by, the paper is then crumbled, ripped, ironed, torn or cut with precision. Then the pieces are woven or assembled in an artistic way, showcasing their unique colors, textures and patterns, ultimately creating fresh contemporary pieces of art that are perfect for everyone. When all the elements come together each piece of my "expressions in paper" is a unique piece of art that can never be duplicated. Ultimately, I hope the piece you select brings a little joy into your world, just as I experienced while creating it.
