Instructor Biography:

Phoenix based paper collage artist Mimi Damrauer...

About Mimi:

Mixed Media Collage is a culmination of everything that I love ... painting, fiber (paper & fabric), & sewing. Collage enables me to use many small pieces together that create one unified design. I am able to control the color and shading as I build my final design. The end result is a simple design that is more complicated when you look at the composition.

My work is Outsider Art (self-taught) and has a primitive folk art feel. I grew up in a creative family with a love of travel, and that is reflected in my work. I mainly work in a series, creating an original piece and exploring that idea/design by altering color and/or size to create related pieces.



Full refund if cancelling 2 weeks before class, half refund before class, no refund once class begins.
