My mixed media works are born of curiosity and wonder. Nature, animals and the ramblings of my subconscious are where I find inspiration. I seek out images or ideas that, when combined, evoke a sense of mystery or delight and follow that path until I feel the power of an emerging story—one open to many interpretations.
Tannehill’s collages are hand-cut—each is one of a kind. She uses public domain images printed on archival paper using pigment ink—ensuring they will not fade. To this she incorporates dyed and textured specialty papers and acrylic paint.
