Crayon Rubbing

I enjoy the shapes, texture and colour that can be created through the simple technique of using crayons on paper to take an imprint of textures in nature. The wood grain rubbings are inspired by artist Max Ernst who obsessively studied woodgrain patterns on flooring, developing ‘frottages’ and used them in his work. 

I have used beeswax crayon and various paper surfaces to build up rich layers of colour. These images are combined and layered with others to make collages.
