SUSANNE SWANSON BERNARD
Valley of the Raven
Valley of the Raven is a collage I created out of my love for nature. It is a hand made or an analog collage, in which paper images were cut to create a new image.
The mountains and raven in particular appealed to me, because they symbolize freedom and spirituality. These things are special to me. I hope they will also have a special meaning to people who view my art.
