Del Foxton tells The Rickie Report, “Circa 105 AD the Chinese invented an awesome process to make paper. More than 2000 years later, I follow a similar process to create my fine art. My Artistry in Handmade Paper began with my belief in the saying that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem!”
Del explains, “When having to take our own garbage to the local dump, I saw the opportunity to use our paper discards to create environmentally friendly artworks. Environmental responsibility together with a limited recycling program in our area prompted the obsession to up cycle paper and garden castoffs into artistic creations.”
Founded in 2005 and located on Grand Bahama Island, Adagio Art Gallery & Studio is where Del creates and exhibits her collection of handmade paper artworks using local vegetation and the discards of our consumeristic society as her main resource.
Del says, “The opportunity to honor our environment while indulging my passion of hand paper making pleases me. I believe that many establishments, homes and businesses who have already addressed environmental issues, may also want to consider extending their programs to the artistry hanging on their walls.”
If you are a home owner, a business owner or an art gallery interested in a totally unique, environmentally conscious look for your premises, Del would be pleased to discuss your needs with. She offers individually designed, custom artworks for your particular space. For more information please visit: www.delfoxton.com
