Collage artist and nature lover, Tasha Smith has been grounded in nature since she can remember. Tasha actively uses nature to not only inspire her floral and landscape work, but as part of her process. Tasha uses locally sourced flora and fauna in her work to create monoprints on a silicone printing plate. She then rips, tears, and glues her paper like a paper brushstroke. At first glance, her work looks like a bright and colorful painting, but on closer inspection the viewer discovers more. It is a painted paper collage!
