Mixed Media Art Questions

Hello Milliande! First, I would like to say that I love your network, and your art journal pages are fabulous!

This probably isn't the best place to post this, so I apologize if that's the case.

I was wondering if you could please take a look at my blog - today's post - I have acquired some old books, one of which is a 1974 Atlas of the U.K. I am a new collector of ephemera, so I have no clue if this book may be valuable. My original intention was to use it as collage ephemera, but I wonder if I would do that...?

I am glad you are enjoying our art community and I am still immersed in Art Journal January ..it has been a busy month ..

From what I can tell it is a pretty standard uk atlas , these are quite freely available over here in thrift stores etc as they are made by the thousands anually ... so I would guess unless it is some sort of limited edition .. you should be pretty save using the book as collage pages

~ You could always photograph or scan the images and then print them out .. but I personally would just go ahead and collage my heart out :-)

Artist Statement

Intuited Narrative - Contemporary Fine Art by Milliande Demetriou

I am a mixed media artist who is intriqued by the notion of universal consciousness and the interconnectedness of being,

I choose to peek closely at the small particles that make up existence and express my personally felt response in paint and stitch. The female form ,the beauty of motherhood, viewing the world in linear fragments rather than wholes and the palpable narrative between all of these are central themes in my artwork.

I enjoy making the invisible visible and creating open-ended artworks that invite the viewer to explore deeper within their own layers of perception.

My favourite media of expressions are pen and ink drawings, acrylic painting, art textiles & printmaking as well as the exploration of mixing these media to create contemporary interpretations of traditional techniques. 

I have always been creative at heart but when discouraged at an early age pursued a science career in biology instead, not retraining myself artistically until the age of 30.

Today I am married and we have a beautiful daughter who is homeschooled and thriving as a young artist herself.


As she comes of age it allows me a little more time to focus on myself and establish my foothold to become a Full Time Artist .

We share our time between the vibrant life in the South of London and tranquil coastal inspiration in West Wales, UK.
