The Process

This piece was a particular challenge in intricate collage work inspired by the great art of quilting. Mama Made began with an underlay of vintage papers affixed to a wood panel, painted over in a less opaque grey as not to distract from the intricacy of the paper collage. The rest of the collage artwork was composed entirely of vintage papers, searched, sorted and selected for the perfect color composition. The triangles in the lady’s dress were all hand-cut with regular scissors in a repeating pattern reminiscent of fabric scraps.
