This artwork was first conceived digitally. Then, each layer of paper was cut and glued together to created a simple, yet intricate, pattern.  My goal with this piece is to show how contrasting shapes, colors and materials can create something harmonic. I call it "Bipolar" because of the shapes, which I think resemble faces, change when the piece is held vertically.  The work is made with acid-free paper and pen.  It is on heavyweight paper and will require a frame for display.

Getting to Know Roberta

“My creative process is somewhere between play and discovery,” says Roberta. Paper is her medium of choice, in layers, which she cuts by hand into intricate geometric patterns. Roberta begins this process digitally, and then transfers the image to paper, where she is able to incorporate the element of texture. Each piece takes painstaking concentration and hours of work. Roberta’s artworks are marked by their clean yet complex structures. The inspiration for her art comes from her studies and career in the field of design. She has a studio in her home, where she likes to work with a constant companion, her golden retriever, always by her side.
