I have always dabbled in a variety of artistic avenues but I think I can say that for the moment I have settled on mixed media.
Having said that, I am very busy looking where I’m going these days as I like to pick up flattened cans and bottlecaps and anything else that takes my fancy and goes under the term ‘recycled’
It gets cleaned and disinfected immediately when I get home!!!!
Same goes for sea glass and sea shells of course….all sea shells are inhabitant free 😉
I always have my camera on me when I go out, results can be seen on the blog I started with a friend: http://www.dublingutterart.blogspot.com/
And can I just say that whenever I use bookpages in my pieces these pages are from books I have rescued from a certain ‘bin’ death (I work part-time in a second hand bookshop!). No new books have been harmed in the process…
Hope you like my stuff and thank you for looking at it.
And thanks to the wonderful Bonzie you can see me in my place at work as they asked me to submit something about myself for the Storque feature:
the other shop I had before I opened under my own name:
(if want to read additional feedback)
You will receive a print of the original ‘altered’ bookpage, taken from ‘Life and Finding of Dr Livingston’.
I found this book in the second-hand bookshop where I work, but I am not able to state exactly when it was printed. The only clue to its age is an inscription by the person it once belonged to dated 1901.
This is a limited edition (50 prints) print of my original illustrated bookpage and every print will be signed and numbered.
The size of the print is approx 9 x 7 inches (23.5 x 17.5 cm) on A4 paper with a white border around the image for easy framing.
Printed on Canon Satin 260gsm Photo Paper Plus with Canon archival inks.
It will be shipped in a protective clear sleeve and sturdy mailer.
The copyright resides with the artist – that’ll be me 🙂
