Using mixed media when making art is engaging and exciting! The entire time that I’m creating a mixed media painting or collage piece I am constantly pondering and considering. In everything I read, and in everything that catches my attention in everyday life—ideas and imagery surface. I open a book to any page and read a passage. I flip through a book of poetry until the glint of a word stops me. Then, at my table I begin telling the story of what these words mean to me. I tell it with color and paper—with things that have the shape and the texture of what the words have become.
It’s cathartic. As the time flies by, I feel like I’m soaring. My happiness is warm and glowing as I work. It’s my therapy.
