Thrift Design

Paper & Mixed Media

Euxton, Lancashire


animals, up-cycled, nature


£20 — £300


I explore and develop unwanted materials to create art from salvaged resources, giving them new and beautiful forms. Marrying unusual combinations of materials I create impressionistic representations of British wildlife. My work is informed by the colours and textures of the reclaimed materials I forage.
