The process of collage takes Mary’s work into a new dimension. The use of hand painted papers create interesting texture, lively color and exaggerated movement in the finished piece. The effect is a visual cross between painting, mosaic and block printing. Light and color and shape taking flowers and water and landscapes to the edge of abstraction and back again.
“My studio looks like a giant gerbil lives in it with pieces of paper spread out across the tables and floor.” Mary said.
