Natural Beauty vs Disposable Society

A seascape to raise awareness of plastic pollution on the beautiful beaches of the Outer Hebrides. A Wet felted background with needle felted detail. The houses are made from silk carrier rods. Hand embroidered French knots for the ocean spray. All the plastic pollution was embroidered on cotton then cut out and stitched onto the painting with felt padding inside each piece to make it more 3D. This was a beach where I used to live and all the pollution on the beach was from photographs I took of the rubbish there.

The original work is sold. Prints and cards are available in the shop.
