Traditionally a watercolourist and acrylic painter, over the last few years Choleena’s attention has been captured by the beauty and vibrancy of tile mosaic. She has developed a process, using different papers —many 100% recycled and coloured with vegetable dyes— to create the appearance of classic tile mosaic. Unlike traditional tile mosaic, this form is light and durable, making it easy to hang and transport. You won’t believe it is paper. In her art, her love of the natural world is obvious but we see a hint of her other interests, as well. Steampunk themes are beginning to take root with zeppelins, gears and British telephone booths.
