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.
Her dedication and love for papermaking gives way to boundless creativity. She has also found community through her association with the Dard Hunter.
Bringing Canadian flavor to island life, her work creatively fuses recycling with the historically Caribbean way of living off the land. She transforms local vegetation and recycled paper in her papermaking process, using barrels of water to transform to pulp by soaking, shredding, cooking, straining, washing, and beating collected plant material and paper. By creating her own canvases, Foxton has complete control over size, shape, thickness, color, and texture, further differentiating her work from all others in the market.
Foxton’s avant garde creations inspire others in the art world to imagine themselves and their work as solutions to the greatest challenges of our time.
