The Eco Art journey of Del Foxton began as a result of wanting to do something about the mounds of paper and garden discards produced by her family. Aware of the many “Lessening Carbon Footprint” initiatives, she researched the Internet for information. There were many interesting websites but Del was captured by the fascinating stories about the ancient art form of hand paper making that began circa 105 AD in China and spread around the world as a result of the silk trade. Over time the process was industrialized but the original method is kept alive today by global artisans. Del connected with these individuals, attended conferences and joined their associations. Del is now one of the global artisans keeping this ancient art form alive. She is delighted that in her small way she lessens her carbon footprint while indulging her passion for making beautiful paper that becomes sculptures and wall hangings.
