Creating colourful canvases from unwanted scratch cards…
From an early age, I always preferred to see litter in bins rather than it spoiling the countryside, parks and seashore. I later realized how some of it can be recycled and this developed into a special interest exploring my own ideas in art. I began finding a use for brightly-coloured scratch cards that had been thrown away, making them into pictures and also combining them with paper wrappings or beachcombed items etc.

  • Unusual and imaginative collage
  • Interesting patterns and vivid colours
  • Inspirational art from thousands of strips and torn pieces of paper
  • I like to work on ideas from my own photography
