Art is about leaving the nest to find one's own way in the world. This piece is made of acrylic paint, transfers, metal leaf, sewing and collage on watercolor paper mounted on a cradled wood panel with finished edges. It comes 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.
