Mixed Media Giclée Prints
An elegant woman with an egg head topped with a hat of meringue, flowers and a pink button. Her collar of mushrooms sits below her pearled neck. A tusk defines her torso, pink beads drape off her shoulder and across her waist. A pet snail follows behind which is kind of creepy, while she juggles to stay out of distraction. Ivories. sage, pink and lavender.
The process begins with high quality magazines and books from which the palettes, shapes, and elements are selected for the central characters. I photograph the backgrounds and manipulate the color in Photoshop to work with the images. The collages are drum scanned and photographed professionally before the merge with the backgrounds. The prints are highest quality archival paper or canvas and archival ink.
