Window to the Soul, 2022, Mixed media collage, 19 x 19 in.
Artist Lisa Bryn Cerny views her artwork as a means of healing. Her mixed media collages of trees, fairies, landscapes, and other enchanted scenes relate the magical and restorative power of nature. The colors, textures, and whimsical content of her artworks are meant to be therapeutic, instilling a sense of wonder and peace in all who view them. Though Cerny uses these collages as an outlet for her internal world and perspective, like nature itself, they are intended to be a space for all to get lost in..
