This first series of collage artworks, released under the title "Nursery Rhyme Delights", was inspired by stories from my childhood. When creating the art works all the memories and mental pictures came flooding back from those I'd conjured up over my early years spent sitting on my grandmother's lap listening to bedtime nursery rhymes, fairy tales and stories for hours.
• After my concept drawings each original nursery storyboard is created from a hand selected number of high quality craft papers. I source these from around the world. Layers of papers are used to create depth and perspective and are combined to bring magic elements to life in each scene and rhyme. Approximately 200 separate pieces of paper are used in each triptych
• Once the collaged image is created I then add definition and detail with acrylic paints and fine tipped art pens
The works would be ideal for a child's nursery, and I could picture them hung above the crib or a beautiful rocking chair.
