You can see here that Mati has created the trunks for this Elephant Stampede from of the edges of doilies.
This Tutti Bird is a great example of how Mati pieces here backgrounds together from found bits of paper.
More recently, I have been regularly following her blog and have been inspired by her new Treasure Seeker, which has gotten me seriously amped to paint. I feel like creating these paintings was definitely a messy, thrilling process, something I sometimes struggle with. I don’t like to get dirty; but the dirtier I get, the better the art. I’m loving her teals and blues with accents of pink, orange, red and found papers tucked throughout.
With Mati’s new paintings, she is hoping to ” evoke a sense of wonder, jewels, sun and sea and fill you up to help preserve your treasures.” These paints are so hopeful and bright, I feel like I could just sail off into the sunset. The papers and paint blend seamlessly in all of these paintings, creating a sort of deep ocean experience.
The photo above and below are two of my favorite because Mati has done an excellent job at showcasing her artwork in a real setting. Not only do I love the composition of all 3 pieces of artwork, but the photos make me want to find a jewelry rack to hang my own jewelry.
If you would like a piece of Mati’s joyfull art, she offers her originals and prints for sale at her etsy shop Suspect Shoppe
