Collage artist Daisy Chisholm worked in marketing and the commercial printing industry for many years as a sales representative. During that time she worked with clients from all avenues gaining knowledge of paper, color and design.


Approximately eight years ago, she started experimenting with collage, taking classes at the KIA and Kalamazoo Books Arts Center. Through working with fellow artists in The Paper Guild, she developed a great appreciation of the beauty and diversity of handmade paper.


Using tissue paper stained with liquid acrylics, she found she could create backgrounds that had light and movement, using handmade paper to add depth and texture. The artist has said that color guides her in design as well as moving her in the final direction of the finished piece.


Over several years, she began to use other fibrous elements from nature. Painting watercolor on silk makes beautiful skies and other fabrics add more dimensions and texture.


"Nature gives the artist the tools, and her eye and heart do the rest."
