(Artist, Creative Soul)
Collette Broeders is a passionate mixed media artist merging traditional processes with new media and performance. In the 80’s she attended St. Clair College of Applied Arts and Technology for business followed by the University of Windsor for the Bachelor of Commerce program. She worked in accounting, business and database development for several years. By 2004, Broeders returned to the University of Windsor where she completed the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) program. Her studies focused on printmaking and investigated the digital realm where she combined both of these mediums. She is a founding member of one ten park : a working space, an active member of the arts community and maintains a studio in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. She has been an ongoing member of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild and International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists. She continues to experiment with community engagement in contemporary art making with additional artistic activities that include public performances as well as papermaking and printmaking workshops in the Windsor-Essex Region.
In many respects, it is the repetition involved in the creative process itself that motivates her work. She has over twenty years experience in the art of hand papermaking. As a print artist and papermaker, she connects with the ‘handmade’ and sensory experience of the natural world.
