Being raised on a ranch/farm and being daddy's little girl was the inspiration for the piece. This piece is composed of collage, paper clay, an old photo, image transfer and drawing on cradled masonite panel. The sides are painted to compliment the front, and the piece comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Darlene

Darlene McElroy sees creating art as similar to reading Turkish coffee grounds – a story becomes revealed as one looks at the surface, texture and color. Her works use a variety of materials ranging from acrylics paints to collage. She currently lives in New Mexico and has been greatly influenced by the work of Robert Rauschenberg. She encourages viewers to search for their narrative interpretation when viewing a work.
