  • Gainesville native Megan Brew has traditionally dabbled in water color and pen and ink work. She discovered the stress-relieving qualities of ‘painting’ with ripped paper last year and has been collaging, using recycled materials, ever since. She lives with her young son in Mount Dora, FL. She says of this piece: “It is 100% recycled materials (salvaged plywood and old magazine and calendars). I used renditions of Hildegard’s own visions to inspire the composition. This form of collage is similar to ‘painting with paper’ as the color and tone from scraps is used to give shape to the final piece.”
