|Christine Rodrigues - Mixed Media Artist|
Based in West London
I studied art at Chelsea School of Art specialising in sculpture and exhibit regularly in West London, the surrounding area and online.
My work is realised using a variety of media and techniques, including photography, printing and collage with acrylics, pens and other materials.
My influences and inspiration come from observing our environment and the natural world, from experiences gained travelling and from my beliefs.
I usually like to work to a theme to produce a series.
Topics include Elephants with the patterns and architecture of India, Birds, mainly waders, found along the coast and responses to prayer using acrylics with line drawing.
Recent work has been influenced by spending some time at the Sussex coast, observing the shapes of shingle beaches and the plants and wildlife found there.
The images here are again inspired by birds, their shapes, repeated, making patterns and creating a quirky scene using layering and printed papers.
