Acrylic collage

The collage technique is perfect for creating birds and animals. Cats are one of my favorites to recreate in acrylic collage.

Using my sketches and hand-painted papers, this design was created with the local colors. Her expressive blue eyes and long, fluffy coat captured my attention.

Occasionally, I enjoy using this square format and working a little smaller, size-wise, than I usually do. I began doing acrylic collages in 1985 in this size with Iowa barns as the subject matter. I have expanded my subject matter since to include florals, figures and others. Collage art can be done by anyone, and I have taught classes in it for all ages. Materials are accessible, and students learn to simplify shapes without depending on details, and the results satisfy them.
