Denise Fiedler brings a new take to the art of collage with her use of vintage, hand-painted book pages, her own hand-painted textures, and other creative use of paper in her whimsical original compositions. Paste started as an art collage business and has grown to include stationery items and art prints as well as custom works by commission, such as:
- Children's portraits
- Pet portraits
- House portraits
- Floral abstractions
- Silhouette representations
- Custom artwork for interior designers
- Unique branding for small business
The original collages are still at the heart of the business in the creation of greeting cards, personal stationery, business logos and posters. Recently, archival quality giclée prints have been made available for select works.
Before Paste, Denise spent 18 years with her first venture, Bravura. There she designed and manufactured textile home and fashion accessories and sold to specialty boutiques. After being commissioned to make collages for the dress and shoe salons of Marshall Field and Co (now Macy’s), she decided to shift her focus from textiles to paper. Her cut and sew became cut and paste.
Denise’s small-scale art pieces include playful and charming bespoke illustrations and collages. Each is one-of-a-kind, inspired by found ephemera, old hand-painted albums and her vivid imagination.
