Sustainable Art

Art Materials

My prints are all done locally and on recycled card stock. 


My original paintings are all done on yupo paper. Yupo is a 100% recyclable and synthetic paper created from the extrusion of melted plastic with no threatening ozone-layer emissions. While yupo paper itself can be recycled it is yet to be discovered if it can be produced from recycled plastic.

Reusing

In my art business I attempt to reuse as much as possible. Sometimes paintings does not work out as intended. Instead of throwing them out and waste a lot of time, ink and paper, I cut them up and reuse them to write personalised thank you notes to my costumers. I find that it is a nice way to use otherwise failed paintings.

Packaging

In my attempt to become more sustainable, I have recently changed my packing procedure to include packing and mailing supplies that are made from recycled cardboard and paper. I also use cellophane bags instead of plastic bags. Cellophane is derived from celloluse, usually from wood, but can also be produced from cotton or hemp. In contrast to plastic, cellophane is 100% degradable.
