Santa Fe nature artist Geninne D Zlatkis is well-known on Instagram and Pinterest for her charming paintings and collages of birds. In GENINNE’S ART: BIRDS IN WATERCOLOR, COLLAGE, AND INK (Quarry Books, June 12, 2018, $24.99 US), for the first time, she offers her fans a field guide to her art process. A skilled nature photographer as well as artist, Geninne begins her work in the field by observing and photographing birds and flowering plants. Then takes her observations back to the studio, where she turns them into works on paper.
Readers will discover, step-by-step, how Geninne selects her materials and then creates her personal imagery. What makes Geninne’s work so successful is her imaginative and colorful interpretation of the birds she has observed so closely. Her work is approachable, and her fans will love to see how she does it, so that they can try it too.
To get them started, the book will include a selection of collage papers, as well as two Geninne prints that can be removed from the book. Geninne brings a wide and ready audience with her to this project.
