This series of work started with my Flotsam and Jetsam collection. These scraps of life collected were found on beaches around the world. I love the fact that they have been previously once loved or definitely once used, that they have worn and weathered, reshaped by time and weather,and the fact they have travelled miles across the ocean.
I started by making mini sculptures fixing pieces together with their own shapes or elastic bands.
Drawing with ink, pen, Woodies, Artgraph, pencil and paint brushes give me freedom to capture the character of these little sculptures. It wasn’t long before I moved on from observation to expressive mark making. This project is ongoing.
