Mixed Media and Collage with Cindy McMath

The focus of this demo will be creating fun mixed media pieces on a variety of substrates using one-of-a-kind collage paper that we will create during the demo.  With the use of inks, paints and papers, Cindy will walk you through how to create pieces that work for journals, greeting cards and even framing.  The emphasis will be on technique and creative play, using bright colours and found papers to design unique pieces.

Artist Bio:

Cindy McMath has been doing something creative for as long as she can remember – everything from bad knitting to stained glass.  But it was papercraft and later painting that really stuck.  Cindy’s paintings hang in private collections in Canada, the UK and the US, and her mixed media pieces have been featured in magazines such as Somerset Studio.  Cindy’s daily creative practice includes a sense of play and experimentation; she posts her art each day on Instagram.
