Collage artist Nancy Scheinman…

I love this artist’s work. Sometimes she works on panel and even copper. Using a wide variety of mediums she usually several different images in her works combining them all to make one fantastic image. The artist went to art school in Missouri and also took classes in New York City and Italy. Text is also important in her work and the layered effect is also another tool this collage artist loves to use.

The artist uses photo emulsion on sheets of copper and acid washes to find some abstract shapes and patterns.The artist even states that due to the nature of the materials that are used, the image relies on an element of chance.

How about trying a collage today. Don’t forget to check out Picasso and my favorite floral collage artist Patrick Locicero for some inspiration as well!
