Mixed medium art work

Mixed medium assemblages

Today I am sharing with you a recent body of work I created which consists of several mixed medium assemblages.

Assemblage is art that is made by assembling disparate elements – often everyday objects – scavenged by the artist or bought specially

These pieces were created using various mediums- collage, alcohol inks, acrylic paints, textiles and use found objects such as clothing and other textiles, medication packets, vintage photographs, vintage books and other ephemera.

Many of the photographs of people used in my work are from my own family history which I have edited for use in my artwork- reserving the original for my families collection.

I enjoy combining traditional craft techniques and materials with a contemporary colour scheme and mediums.

speak soon!
