What Inspires me to do these fossil art pictures...
There is a fascination about fossils, that when viewed for the first time it transports the viewer to a completely different world, a world where all sorts of wondrous creatures lived and breathed. By recreating these fossil pictures I hope to inspire the viewers imagination, to think about these alternative worlds not just of the past but of fantasy and futuristic worlds through my Fossil art.
At the presant time I am constantly looking for fossil forms from my surroundings around me. For Example you might see a twig; I see a fossil bone, you might see a sycamore seed; I see a fossil dragonfly's wing or a fossil fish's fin. You see a piece of bark; I see a fossil turtle shell, a fossil skull and so on. I believe nature recreates itself in many different ways. For example Evolution, revisits the past; i.e similarites between ancient fish type reptiles and modern dolphins etc.
I have now perfected a way to Waterproof my work so it may be hung outside.
