Harriet Green ran the innovative Chameleon Paint Workshop in the New Forest for over six years - painting furniture and interior accessories and teaching one day workshops in decorative paint techniques. She then discovered the delights of using metal leaf while learning the craft of bookbinding and has found an interesting and unique way of using this medium to create some stunning and original artwork.
This particular style of her artwork is presented under the broad title of The Alchemy Collection, comprising a series of medium to large wall panels on both canvas and plywood using mixed media, including composition or faux gold leaf, 22ct gold leaf, silver and aluminium leaf and copper leaf as well as metallic paints, shellac and wax. This series is selling well and one piece and Alchemy: Panel 2 now hangs in the Krug Room (the Head Chef's private dining room) at The Dorchester Hotel, London.
As well as creating other paintings she also makes and sells Bali style flags for weddings, private parties, camping and festivals (www.umbul-umbul.co.uk) and enjoys Argentine Tango.
Harriet welcomes commissions/enquiries from both private and corporate purchasers.
