Collection: Col Mitchell

I love that feeling of wonder infused in every first time experience, of seeing something I have never seen before, or a new twist on something familiar. As an artist, I strive for a little of that magic within my art. I imagine it is what also makes me a mixed media addict. Different mediums and materials bring so much to the picture; they have their own story and can contribute to make a new story.

At the core of my inspiration is my memories and experiences of the summers I spent immersed in the magnificent natural surroundings of Algonquin Park. Where the too few amenities of the cottage meant nature was a strong presence, very much “in my face.” No electricity and therefore no television, Gameboys or iPhones meant imagination was King.

I am an international award-winning paper artist and through my original technique of pen & ink on sculpted paper I fluidly meld texture with intricately layered lines of colour, creating magical impressions of the beauty and mystery of nature and wildlife.

My work has featured in CBC Arts Paper Cuts video series; Times Square digital exhibition, NYC; the 2010 G8/G20 Summit Media Centre, Toronto; online & print magazines; art publications; popular art blogs; and juried global exhibitions.
