Artist Statement:

“For many years, my main focus has been on watercolor. I have been drawn to repetition of content within an image, and to the soft and rounded edges that watercolor creates. Recently, I began experimenting with paper collage, using torn pieces of paper as the medium, essentially painting with paper. Manipulating fragmented words and images, this work encourages an abstract approach resulting in exciting, fresh landscapes and interpretive wildlife. In addition, collage allows me to fulfill my passion to recycle and repurpose as much of my world as I can. Reusing magazines in this way not only eliminates a goodly amount of waste, but also contributes to the body of creativity and viewers’ artistic enjoyment.

Trees and of Trees presents the natural world with images of fruit, birds, nests, and other goings-on within the community of trees. Each piece shares everyday tree activities teaming with life, celebrating nature, and bringing full circle the transformation of paper which of course comes from trees.”

– Donna MacLure
