January 2017: Eco Create exhibition and the siren's song

Each year Eco Create hold an open exhibition to promote awareness environmental issues and to showcase artists and crafts people who use low impact methods or recycled/reclaimed materials. This year the theme was 'Time and Tide Waits for No Man' and my entry was 'The Siren's Song'. The original illustration drawn over summer was printed via a laser printer and then transferred onto a piece of driftwood using a solution made from orange peel which gently transfers the toner onto the wood. I used lyrics from the Radiohead song 'There There' to compliment the illustration. I was really pleased with how this piece looked and so were the judges as I won Silver!!! The exhibition is running the entirety of January in the foyer at Banks Mill Studios in Derby.
