Del Foxton - through her innovative, environmentally conscious work - is diversifying the world of fine art.
Sparked by the sight of paper waste, Foxton has taken environmental responsibility to new heights, producing aesthetically pleasing work from raw material that would remain debris but for her artistically refined vision.
A Little About Me
I appreciate the opportunity to tell you a little about me and my artistic journey of Transforming Paper Discards into Wall Sculptures.
When I transitioned from a corporate background in Canada to an artistic lifestyle on Grand Bahama Island, my eco upbringing had a problem adding the paper waste produced by my career and my family to the local dump.
I needed to take action.
Web surfing led me to the ancient art form of hand paper making that began in China 105 AD. And although paper making is now industrialized, the original process is kept alive by me and other global artists who enjoy lessening their carbon footprint, creatively.
In 2004 I opened Adagio Art Studio and Gallery in East Grand Bahama and we enjoyed welcoming guests to experience how I married the eons-old techniques of hand paper making with the magic of today’s technology.
Well as we know in September 2019 our quiet island was hit by hurricane Dorian that destroyed our home and my Adagio Art Studio and Gallery.
However We, and our beautiful island are slowly working our way to a bright new future.
I continue to indulge my passion for transforming paper waste into artistic creations that can be viewed online at delfoxton.com and at the new island location of Adagio Art Studio and Gallery.
