Mixed media

Exploring innovative ways in which to create an image really excites me. How can I create an effect by using unusual materials? How can i create interesting textures?

From newspaper, masking tape, to corrogated cardboard, string, toothbrushes, and sea sponges for printing – I love to experiment with obscure tools and materials to create a more interesting effect.

You can see the effects of specific materials by enlargening each image:
