|The Mystery of Violet Oakley|
Hi there. I'm new here, so please let me introduce myself and my work. I am Shelby Pizzarro and I live in Dillsburg. My life in the Visual Arts has been as a commercial Screen Printer, Printmaker, and Illustrator. I am a graduate of the York Academy of Arts, York, PA.
I have always loved collage work and recently began taking classes with another Daily Painter member, Sue Marrazzo at the Art Center School & Galleries, Mechanicsburg. The class is great fun and I would recommend it if you see collage in your artistic future.
The Mystery of Violet Oakley was a class project. The technique was to weave the paper into the finished art. It is a conventional piece. The substrate is canvas. In addition to the photo of Violet, I used handmade paper, art paper, ribbon, joss paper, a letter written by Violet, and pressed rose petals.
If you would like to see more of my work, please do visit my blog, Sisterhood of the Muse.
Once again, Hello...nice to see the variety of great work on the blog. I hope you enjoy my "non-painter" efforts.
