A unique mini decay mixed media painting.


I love rescuing old wallpaper and paint, I obtain pieces from skips, renovation projects and from abandoned/derelict houses.  Each piece representing a period of time in that home.  The people that lived there, each generation choosing a new design...these tiny fragments holding so many memories.  By repurposing these pieces into my art ensures they are forever cherished.


The rose paper on the left is handmade/painted then made to look old.  The other flowered paper on the right is original vintage wallpaper that I rescued from a renovation project at Cherry Hill, York.  I have included a photo of the tiny piece when it was on the wall (just to the right of the shovel). 


The tiny blue fragments of paint are from a skip and originate from another renovation project on the lovely St Pauls Square, York. 


The background is made from many layers of acrylic paint with tiny pieces of concrete.


The black box frame measures  12 x 12 x 3.5cm and can also be wall mounted.  The painting is continued on the sides of the inner frame too.  Each painting has a hand written tag detailing the media used as well as the history to each piece containedin the painting.
