About the Art:
While not defined by genre, Treble's work has a unifying theme of vivid color or striking monochrome. She starts with a photograph of her surroundings and then re-imagines it using filters and special effects. Because of her lifelong connection to music, the work is primarily in a square format to represent LPs, 45s, and CD covers. Two of her pieces have been used as album covers by local musicians. Treble also uses her "Centers" series of kaleidoscopes as part of her recycled vinyl records and cds assemblage art. The 12" records are painted on a turntable as it's turning. To bring her art beyond wall art, Treble also has her work printed on a variety of products such as scarves, bags, dog tags and more. Treble's art has raised around $4,000 for local non-profits through silent or live auctions at events. Currently you can find Treble's art at Foxley's Art and Framing and Menasha Market - 140 Main.
