For pieces that are just a hair larger than what could fit in your pocket these are intricate and complex art. These are, of course, not the only sort of art she does but they are certainly pieces that are unique and mae a statement.
Collage, in fact, might not be the right term for the work; there is something literary about it and not just because there are words. An ad for a shoe store has words and is, generally, not literary. There is a tendency, in some modern collage, to take an existing piece of art and subtly alter it. This is true to the point where it has almost become cliche.
Oakey avoids this entirely. Though her work uses existing material, they are an amalgamation that becomes art through joining with the other odds and ends she assembles.
Oakey is a graduate of Design & Architecture Senior High (Miami) and holds an AA in Art from Miami Dade College and BFA from Flprida International University.
