Alyce Ritti of Port Matilda writes: “Living ‘60 plus’ years in the 20th  Century has given me a strong comic spirit. Using unusual materials in mixed media collage and assemblage allows me to work with serious subjects in playful ways.  My current work continues the collage tradition  of commenting on human behavior. There is no end of ‘inspiration’ in that. For some entertaining  information about my work and myself please visit website”
