Hello my name is Evelyn and I am the mixed media and collage artist behind Type 4 Arts.
I do my by best to create minimal waste and hate to throw things away. I can be a bit of a hoarder and so this means I have unused materials going back several years!
A lot of my mixed media and collage art feature scraps and unused items I couldn't bring myself to throw away. This includes leftover photocopies, old magazines, lace, newspapers, fabrics, doilies, photographs, negatives, old drawings and other materials. All these materials are upcycled into my artwork.
I also have an obsession with texture and feathers and this can be seen in the majority of my work. My style is abstract, busy, detailed, bold, sometimes chaotic, random, spontaneous, sometimes with lots of movement, very textured and often with strong contrasts. I enjoy combining all sorts of materials including some that I have altered as well as my own hand printed papers. I love to tear and cut up old illustrations, drawings and old artwork to use in my collages and mixed media art.
The beauty of mixed media, collage and assemblage is that I can create art from any material, I often think that if it's not bolted down I will collage or assemblage it!
I am very introverted - A Type 4/2 in Carol Tuttle's energy profiling system. Art allows me to recharge my batteries and create art the same time! As a Type 4 my natural nature is to want to perfect things, art gives me a balance where I can create art that is beautiful and intriguing in it's very roughness and imperfection. I absolutely love creating original mixed media art and collages.
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy what you see on this website and find that piece to adorn your home or establishment.
My next collection is available soon and will include canvases and hand decorated hardback notebooks in size A6, A5 and A4.
