Live, Love, Be by Marnita Patton. All Rights Reserved. I am a mixed media, collage artist.
This year I have created art works to generate monies and present a view about those things close to my heart. I’ve done expressions for: National Eating Disorders Association, National Alliance for Mental Illness, American Art Therapy Association/Florida Art Therapy Association, Breast Cancer, Central Florida Aquarium Society and Pulse-Paint Orlando Strong.
My work, reflects my love of combining different elements. Whether two or three dimensionally, I experiment with color, fibers, texture, pencil, watercolor, acrylic, clay, iridescent pigments, gemstones, metal, stamping ... all of it could be a part of my creation.
For this entry I used artist paper designed by M. Fisher - art elements by A. M. Wolniak. Torn scrapbook paper was added in certain areas and accent words. The elephant was done with watercolor paints/pencils on Strathmore cold press; then, cut out and applied to the background artist paper which had additional acrylic paint accents.
