My Mixed Media Process
I use varied and recycled materials to create a sheet as my base, the same as I would have a sterling silver or copper base sheet.
I hand texture the sheet using various techniques and use a pierce saw for cutting out pieces which are further enhanced to create my mixed media art jewellery in different designs. I then use an air brush and/or hand brush to paint, building up layers of colour and effect in a similar way to a motorbike artist but on a smaller scale for jewellery, art and decorative metalwork.
I get my inspiration from motorbike art and effects especially from my paint job I had done on my motorbike which is a crystal rainbow drusy effect.
I also get inspiration from the changing seasons displaying their array of beautiful colours and textures that nature bestows on us.
