Every picture I create begins life as a pile of magazines which would otherwise be destined for the recycle bin. (I swap eggs from my chickens for magazines from neighbours!) I find inspiration in the colours on the pages I find and that is often the starting piece for a picture. Just using a pair of scissors I cut or rip intricate shapes and pieces form the recycled papers and then layer them to create a canvas painted with papers.
I love colour and try to use a range of bright and fun colours in all my work, which sells all over the world and is seen as something a big different. The inspiration for this picture came from the fountain at the Botanical Gardens in Cambridge (UK), which is always surrounded by insects and colourful flowers.m
This picture comes beautifully mounted with a high quality picture mount and in a picture cello bag and is frame ready (Fits standard off the shelf frames).
