The messenger’s head dress is a sea plant and gold flowers. Her shoulders are gold bracelets, sleeves of nutted, sliced peaches and hip ornament of the same sea plant and a Masai collar.

She floats among green clouds. Gold, greens, red.
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.
