SUSTAINABLE PRACTICE as an Artist
What does it mean to have a sustainable and climate-friendly practice? How do you stay or try and become carbon negative or neutral as an artist?
In my journey to help save the environment, I rework old wooden boards, cardboard and canvases with a canvas that would have gone out to the landfill. The recycled material comes from a printing company that was going to throw it away into a landfill.
I also create my own paper as you can see- it is made from everything that would be trashed in my home. Sometimes I incorporate plastic or other items into the paper; as I am trying to prevent removing plastic so I now use it in my practice more often.
It also gives you the chance to experiment with new materials, texture and other things that you would have never thought of if you only painted and did nothing else like myself.
