Mixed Media Paintings over reworked prints and photography 2019/2021
Sustainable Renewable Artworks - ongoing series from a store of proof prints.
Each reworked print is uniquely realised & re-painted into a variation on a theme.
MIXED MEDIA WORKS
Paintings over discarded prints : A Repurpose Pledge
I choose to Repurpose my paper resources to help reduce and keep my waste to the minimum.
I collect paper offcuts from trimmed prints to make paper pulp in handmade recycled paper.
Individual business cards come from paper offcuts.
Surplus Linocut designs are cut up to make a series of stamps for blind embossing onto Limited Editions.
New concepts come from mono printing onto proof prints and mixed media works are combined in layers to become new designs on top of old prints.
Packaging to send my works are always with recycled card and paper.
Avidly saving and reusing ink and paints left on my palette for use next time as a base cover.
Having a small sustainable practice adds a unique creative angle but also allows for experimentation and is in keeping with my concerned efforts to waste less, becoming more environmentally conscious with each work and series I make.

FRAGMENT SERIES 2021 ( current constructed works in progress)
Watercolour, ink and pastel works are a series of deconstructed forms taken into digital. Once a collection is made these forms will take on a 3D aspect for installation display next to my prints and photography.
