Mixed Media Aritst

Trisha Oldfield

As a mixed media artist, I enjoy using a variety of mediums and techniques from collage, acrylic on canvas, watercolor and ink, linocut prints, photography and digital & hand drawn illustrations. One of my favorite mediums is collage on wood. I love mixed media collage because I can combine my paintbrush skills with my obsession with scissors. I can swoon over fabulous papers and patterns and immerse myself in finding vintage magazines, books and images. I love it because of its spontaneous and forgiving nature. It not only opens a world of impossible associations but can harmoniously link thoughts, styles and even artistic technique used throughout history. It breathes new life into old discarded forgotten art that should be appreciated and admired. I have been professionally painting for over 20 years.
