From an early age, Ellen Tresselt enjoyed making collages. She studied illustration at Philadelphia College of Art and at The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. She discovered the art of paper marbling as an art teacher in Danbury, and produced marbled paper for other artists. Her true desire has always been to use her marbled paper in her own work, as reflected in her exhibit. The title, Say the Word, refers to a new series of collages made with words and phrases with which I resonated. Words that whispered or shouted out as if a higher wisdom were speaking directly to me like a fortune cookie sometimes does. Because these words have been culled from vintage magazines (dating from the 1920s through the 1960s) they reflect many typefaces no longer used or seen today. As a result the words take on a subtle power and mystique which adds another layer to their meaning.
