Faces Pattern Collage

I love to explore the possibilities of all mixed media.
There is still so much to learn.
I understand the workings and characteristics of a few, but I am a master of none.
This constant search for new, untried mediums and then, once found, the excited and sometimes frustrating play that comes next, is, for me, what art is all about.
This constant practice, exploration and learning is pretty much at the heart of why I try to make art.
I have always had a deep love for detailed pattern....Moroccan tiles, Indian paisley etc. and this month I've been inspired by the beautiful work of artists Anne Bagby and Lynne Perrella who use faces, pattern and collage in the most exquisite ways.
As a Creative Team member for Finnabair, I have explored my love of faces, pattern and collage, using pretty much only her fabulous products for this double page journal spread.

You can find a detailed step by step of my process HERE on the Finnabair blog.
