Watercolour painting of buttons

 

"Tanisha's Picks"

 

"I make still life paintings with a mixed media approach. I am drawn to old, unique objects that have a personality of their own. I enjoy putting them together to create an interesting composition using a narrative approach. I work with watercolor, along with pastels, charcoal, pen, and image transfer techniques to add depth to my pieces. Using a mixed-media approach adds texture and color to my work. Most of my work is done in a representational or tromp l’oeil style. I currently am working on a series of tromp l’oeil paintings that focus on different periods of my life, such as my childhood, my wedding, and the birth of my son." - Colleen Wiley
