Abby Diamond Paper Collage Demo at Barnes and Noble

| Entertainment | July 4, 2019

Abby Diamond will demonstrate the art of paper collage at the meeting of the Santa Clarita Artists Association (SCAA) on Monday, Aug. 1. This event is free, open to the public and meets at 6:30 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 23630 Valencia Blvd.

Taking her inspiration from nature, Diamond creates colorful, unique and evocative landscape collages using torn pieces of magazine paper. Her Torn Paper Mosaics skillfully combines methods and theory learned from oil, watercolor and Chinese brush painting to create pure expressions of color, layer, shape, texture and outline.

“I’m a freelance illustrator and scribbler of things. I use ink and paints to draw monsters, colorful creatures, and beasts with too many limbs,” said Diamond. “After graduating with my BFA in Studio Art, I threw myself into creating art full-time. Album artwork, tattoo designs, and card games are some of the few things I like to illustrate. I hope to become a children’s book illustrator in the future.”

Diamond studied with Dorothy Cannon, a popular Los Angeles children’s art instructor, took sculpture and papier-mâché classes at Every Woman’s Village, and learned numerous arts and crafts techniques thanks to the offerings at public schools and community centers.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive early, as the event is expected to be standing room only by 6:30 p.m. See www.SantaClaritaArtists.org for more information.
