Del Foxton, International Eco-Artist, Exhibits in Palm Beach County

Learn about “green art” from an expert!  Del Foxton has just returned from her Bahama Studio to share some of her newest artwork.  Del is a contemporary Eco Artist whose artistry in Handmade Paper began with her belief that “if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem”. When taking garbage to the local dump, she saw an opportunity to turn paper and garden castoffs into artistic creations. Canadian by birth and Bahamian by choice, Del’s colorful and inventive artwork is on display in a few local galleries in Southeast Florida. The Rickie Report shares the information and gives you a preview and dates of her upcoming Shows at The Arts Arena (Delray Beach), Artisans On The Ave (Lake Worth) and OSGS (Northwood Village, W.Palm Beach). Here are some sneak peeks, but you REALLY have to see them in person!

Around 105 AD, the Chinese invented an amazing process to make paper. This invention changed history and Del Foxton’s life. Now more than 2000 years later, she follows a similar process to create her artistry. Her decorative artworks are contemporary pieces designed to beautify an existing space or to start a new room that will warm the heart and hearth. 
Del believes that many homes and offices, having already addressed environmental issues, may want to consider extending their plans to the artistry hanging on their walls.

Del describes herself as a, “contemporary Eco artist. 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”. When having to take our garbage to the local dump, I saw an opportunity to turn our paper and garden castoffs into artistic creations.” In addition to Del finding her own recycled treasures, people are always dropping off leaves, plant clippings and other garden discards along with paper she can recycle.

Del has been doodling since childhood and began her handmade paper explosion ten years ago. Her bubbly personality compliments her outstanding, color-filled art pieces. Some of Del’s pieces are painted while others use the “au natural” pigments of her materials. Her corporate background with the Sara Lee Corporation gives her the teaching skills she employs during her demonstrations and workshops. Del is available to speak and demonstrate for local organizations.

 

 

"Take Flight" by Del Foxton

Del tells The Rickie Report, “For me, reusing nature is the source for my artistic inspiration. I experiment with different local leaves, flowers, seaweed and their combinations, mixed with recycled paper, to see what interesting paper will result. Being able to create a unique work of art from nature’s resources stirs my creative juices. I feel fortunate to have entered into this broad field of handmade paper that for over 500 years was a closely guarded secret. I have found an art form that speaks to my soul.”

 

 

"Color Me Happy" by Del Foxton

Del’s artistry can be found at The Arts Arena (Delray Beach), Artisans On The Ave. (Lake Worth) and OSGS (Northwood Village, West Palm Beach). She welcomes the opportunity to work with you to create special artworks that reflects your commitment to the environment. “I’ll be happy to create unique Eco friendly artworks just for you”, she tells us. Visit her website and you will see happy art patrons and their accolades for Del’s artistry.

The Northwood Village Mural Project was conceived in early 2014 with Northwood Village Merchants and Proponents Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla, Billy Manthy, William Halliday, Craig McInnis, Eduardo Mendieta and the West Palm Beach CRA. The West Palm Beach CRA and Edaurdo Mendieta spearheaded the initial Artist search and saw the first three murals in Northwood Village through to completion. Currently, there are several completed murals adorning the walls of various buildings in Northwood Village.These murals were created by Eduardo Mendieta, Amanda Valdes, Craig McInnis and now Tiffany Beasi.

Artist, Tiffany Beasi

This Mural at OSGS by Tiffany is part of the Northwood Village Mural Project but was produced solely by the owners of OSGS Gallery (as opposed to the initial murals funded by the CRA). Tiffany has painted murals in other Palm Beach County locations (Downtown Lake Worth at Dave’s Last Resort) as well.

The Northwood Village Mural Project is now in the hands of the Village Merchants and future growth will depend on merchant follow-through, sponsorships, and overall exposure to generate Northwood Village as a Mural Destination. Murals projects have thrived in many cities and create a fabulous environment for all to enjoy.

In 2002, Halliday moved his company to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where he utilized his professional career experiences and innovative vision to attract clients from the Mid-East and all over the world.
