2018 series || U N T I T L E D ||  mixed media on board Painting and drawing onto MDF, glass, metal and other found objects allows the materials to behave in a variety of ways. Applying paint, scratching away, adding more and removing some, creates a repetitive, cathartic process until a balanced outcome is achieved. Much like the physical process of the installations (which can be seen on the website) the work is documented throughout using photography. In addition to visual elements, text is used in response to a variety of subjects. Some refers to a found diary from childhood, as does the naivety of repeated shapes. www.charlottebillingham.co.uk Instagram: @charlottebillingham.art Contact via website  Read More →

Throughout my whole life, all I have ever wanted to do is create. From knitting with bits of string and pencils as a child, to crocheting, painting, printing and even playing with porcelain as an adult. Creativity is in my blood. I completed my degree at Wolverhampton university, as a mature student, graduating with a BA(hons) in 2017. I use various different techniques and practices in my work, such as print and textiles. Currently I am using porcelain and glass, to create insect curiosities, with an idea to expand this into textiles. www,janinealgerdesign.etsy.com www.janinealger.wixsite.com/mysite  Read More →
