Indulge me a moment for singing the praises of my lovely young niece, who is becoming an extraordinary artist. No, that's not her in the graphic of the woman- that's a portrait of her great grandmother. (Who, incidentally, was a famous theatre actress in the 30's and 40's)
She's come up with an interesting and original technique of collage, where she essentially paints with paper. Of course I'm prejudiced, but I find her work to be both beautiful and compelling. I love the texture and the colors. And I guess I'm not the only one- she's having her first professional gallery show in February.
(Original art is paper and gesso on canvas).
