About the artist:

Annette Vlieg is a self-taught, multi-media artist who works primarily with paper mache. The sustainability of paper mache appeals to Annette, as it gives her the opportunity to recycle cardboard, newspaper and found natural objects. The outer surface of her works are completed using paper clay and a seal of gesso, acrylic paint and matte spray varnish.

“I was initially drawn to simplicity of form and capturing quiet expressions of the female face. I have shifted to incorporate objects from nature as a means of reflecting my strong feelings for, and connection to, the natural world. I have also incorporated ideas from my work as a clinical therapist to express “parts” of the psyche that are somewhat universal, though often hidden. Upon the completion of each piece, I search for a name that captures the essence of what the piece has come to represent. The names often have their roots in Greek mythology, which is also strongly associated with nature and themes of personality.” – Annette Vlieg
