Green, Brown and Grey pastel boards have become the "under painting" coloured surfaces for Justine's Oil Pastels which have an airy, moving linear quality, similar to Van Gogh's passionate paintings. Collage combined with watercolours has become another component to Justine Mantor's layering techniques as she creates abstractions of desert vistas utilizing such diverse elements as hand-painted papers, shredded money and maps, cloth, lace papers, dried flowers, bark and glitter.

The Southwest is a never ending source of excitement and ideas as Justine Mantor is continually challenged to find new methods to illustrate the mysterious and changing desert.
