Skye Soard is a Mixed Media Artist who loves to repurpose/recycle found objects by incorporating them into her art. Her main studio is in Ojai, CA where she leads ArtPlay Workshops.
She lives with her best friend/husband Tom, 5 dogs and 3 cats. She is 69 years young.
She is intrigued by faces. "My husband and I often play a game, what is her/his story". We guess a persons occupation by studying their facial expressions, attire and body language. We are interested in their stories, their trials, what makes them happy."
"As I drink my tea", is composed of 35 teabags that Skye used during the month of January 2018.
Each day after tea she removed the tea from the bag, opened them up, dried them and painted on each one, then glued them to book pages for strength before adding them to her journal.
"This journal was inspired by the faces of people I would like to know. "
The materials used were acrylic paint, gesso, stabilo pencils and inks, tea bag old book pages. Tea bag paintings which were glued on to book pages and pasted into the journal after having been sprayed with a light coat of varathane. The last step was to lighly wax and buff each page to keep them from sticking.
