Hi, I'm Gill and it's great to have you visit this page!
Fragility and Strength,Translucence
I'm a mixed media artist working with delicate materials, thin filmy layers of paper and silk, sometimes eco printed, that become resilient when exposed to the encaustic process. I love this paradox. I build up layers including monotype and photographic prints, fibres and coloured inks.
Nature inspires me. I enjoy making images that evolve as one looks at them, ... sparking associations that develop and deepen. I combine elements that wouldn't normally be seen together, creating a new entity which is meaningful to me.
Recently, I've been building vessels out of felt.
The ambiguity of line, sometimes the result of natural fibres I'm using and otherwise what I add by stitching or adding strips of printed washi is satisfying my current passion.
