Forestry Stewardship Council Certified Papers

Michelle Rothacker

My ideas come from my surroundings. I lived in Nashville, Tennessee for a number of years which influenced the floral and plant designs. Bright, bold colors began to appear after sailing to Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Jamaica for a year, and then settling in Florida. Currently, I am fascinated with the many birds Florida is privileged to be home to during all different times of the year, and these too have made their way into my imagery.

I create my artwork using a multi-step process. I make the paper that is the background, and then add hand-painted images, cut paper, pressed flowers and leaves to complete the designs. The handmade materials are carefully coordinated in a way that brings all of the design elements into harmony.

Once this process is finished, each completed design is mounted on a background specifically chosen to complement the arrangement. I then reproduce them using a complex process that allows for faithful recreation of each color and texture. All of my work carries my signature, to add that extra touch.

I really enjoy creating these images, and I hope you enjoy them also.
