Artist: Deborah Cherrin
Business: Wise Owl Artworks
Art: Multimedia Collage
I design dazzling collages using translucent papers to create a glowing, idyllic, and enchanted representation of gardens, forests, woodlands, and wildlife. My unique style of artwork communicates the deep spiritual connection we have with the Earth and the natural beauty that surrounds us. I sell my original artworks and giclee prints, as well as a curated selection of canvas totes and bags, stationery, and home decor with my designs.

I believe in the power of transformation. In my art, I combine sustainability with beauty, employing decoupage to morph unwanted objects into objects d’art.

As I apply seemingly simple materials of paper and glue, old scarred but structurally sound furniture leaps to life in an exuberance of color teeming with nature’s glory: Dressers metamorphose into rainbow fantasies of birds and fish. Mismatched, dented chairs become colorful conversation pieces. Coat racks and picture frames bring the flower garden indoors on the dreariest day. I even use the world’s oldest paper (birch bark) to create a fresh, neutral palette for modern objects.
All items are made with a stringent commitment to reuse and repurposing. With the exception of glue and finishes, I do not purchase ready-made or new items. It is a labor of love to glean and revive my materials. It is in this spirit, I reanimate unloved items into objects of beauty and worth.

Made in the tradition of the old blues artists, these are three-stringed guitars tuned to CDG for easy playing with a slide. They can easily be tuned to other cords, too.  My guitars are handmade from modern cigar boxes with turn-of-the-century artwork on them. They have old maple necks; some are fretted. Non-fretted guitars come with a wine-bottle glass slide. All guitars are electric and can be plugged into an amp. If you need a special theme, let me know.
