About this project

A collection of privately commissioned portraits.
Through the process of Creative Reuse I salvage materials of all kinds to recreate colours and textures. Creating depth using layers of salvaged packaging. I then selected pieces of scrap to bring the image alive.
Often I add items of significance to the pieces which tell a story about the owner or their pet. This creates points of interest and a richness to the art piece which goes beyond an ordinary image copy.

Angus

This portrait of Angus is made from salvaged packaging, maps of the seas and general fabric scraps which conveys the owners interests in travelling and deep sea diving.
