Trish Grantham’s work starts with wood frames that she covers in vintage paper. The paper is very important knowing how each page will react with different paint colors and resin. Layering the different styles of old paper and book pages in just the right way adds the perfect background to start painting.
Trish loves to spend time in the library going through the picture files and wildlife books getting ready to start new work. She doesn’t start with a sketch or a full idea, but simply starts with one character then begins to build from there. Watching the story unfold as if she is working from an old fable telling it as she goes. Trish always looks forward to the end result, seeing the narrative for the first time.
