"Kids Collage" by Matula Adams. Collage, 48 x 60 inches
"Every child is an artist; the problem is how to remain one once we grow up." Art in different forms has always been a passion for me, particularly writing and drawing. During the time when I wasn't working in Medicine, children’s free artistic expression inspired my beginning in creating collages with their work, to turn them in masterpieces that can last a lifetime and be everlasting reminders of their imagination and creativity. Each one that I create is different, just like every child. This kind of creative work became my full time occupation for many years. I was selected to participate at the first Art Slam in Dallas, which made my work more widely recognized and appreciated.
