db Waterman Profile picture YOU MAKE ME HAPPY is a sequel to I LIKE IT HERE.
Since I LIKE IT HERE is a great success, I wanted to create a female version of this work. Let's hope this work will be just as successful!

YOU MAKE ME HAPPY is a collage artwork built with images and texts.
Some of the images I created myself or are parts of previous original artworks.

For a number of years, I began to specialize in creating collages inspired by advertising posters and advertising columns. The old and weathered appearance of posters has always fascinated me. Meanwhile, my collages are more than just copies of weathered posters. It is an extensive series with many different images and stories. Sometimes in my collages I also use photographs that I take myself and edit with photoshop and incorporate into my artworks.
I work with paper and canvas, print techniques, collage, acrylic paint, watercolor, ink, pastel crayon, ballpoint pen, pencil , photography and photoshop. Often in combination.

I remembered that as a young girl I so much liked to cut images from magazines to paste them into school agendas, scrapbooks and even on my bedroom door. Add to this the fascination I always had for walls filled with old posters, flaking paint, scrappy billboards and weathered paint, it opened an unexpected door for completely new opportunities. Completely unintended I found a new way of working, I felt pleasurably and comfortably at home in. What started out as copying old walls with worn out posters has grown into many series of new visual storytelling. Not simply just eclecticism, but bringing together many seemingly incoherent story lines into one completely new story, my own personal story. Initially it lacked the one thing that is important to me, the transparency that normally only is possible with the use of watercolor. The unforgiving layering of transparent watercolors is a challenge I would not want to miss and after a lot of trial and error I finally succeeded in getting the collages as transparent as a watercolor. Every layer of paper, oil, acrylic, pencil, crayon, ballpoint, watercolor, ink, charcoal and whatever else I use, remains visible in the artwork. You can imagine it made me feel the queen of the ball !
