Heavy Rain is one collage out of the near to three hundred created in 2017. They form a body of work in their own right but many will also serve as 'sketches' on which she will base her next series of large paintings. Capturing an environments state of flux or feeling of displacement Maelzer creates these collages with the collection of images collected over the years taking them off fin their own direction.
