Found images, on found paper… Yes! I love this mixed media collage work by Chattanooga based artist Hollie Chastain, but what I love even more is her process. Instead of sketching, or planning in advance, she lets the bits and pieces she finds in thrift shops guide her work:

Influenced by nature and fairy tales, she lets water stains, scribble and natural aging play into her pieces. The subject of the piece is often influenced by the materials as opposed to building around a sketch or idea.

That’s it, I’m running out to a thrift shop this very minute!
