Layering & Weaving: Paper Paintings

Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson’s love of collage started with a scrapbox of mementos from childhood, triggering the journey to the works she does today from torn bits of hand-painted papers.  (Above, Jazz Singer)

My technique has evolved as a result of experimentation with hand-painted, hand-made and a wide variety of textured and patterned papers. Layering and weaving, pushing and pulling the colors, patterns and values makes collage liken to music.  I go back and forth, alternating and overlapping until the rhythm creates something I love. –Artist Statement

  1. I love these! I’m always looking for inspiration to try new things… Might attempt something similar 🙂
