Milton, Alexandra

I see my work as belonging to a long tradition of artists whose aim is to celebrate the extraordinary beauty of the natural world.

My aim is to capture and recreate the magnificent colour of feathers, the fluffiness of down, the softness of fur and the scaly texture of reptiles.

To achieve this, I have devised a collage technique using layers of torn and shredded paper to which I add a touch of coloured pencil, along with gold and silver leaf.
