Question 4

Work in progress

A lot of your artwork on the website is Mixed Media. What does that mean?

Mixed media is the term given to work that just doesn’t use one medium – other than paint I use things like tissue paper patterns, oil sticks, graphite, shellac, water-colour pencils, ink, pieces of my dried up paint (paint-skins), torn hand-coloured ‘scraps’…

Eric Carle is an artist I admire. He hand paints tissue papers for his collages. I like to study his illustrations & see how he has put them together.

I love this piece, Elizabeth. Can't wait to see it finished.
