MADE IN JERSEY - MEET THE MAKERS
VERUSCHKA DE LA HAYE
I was born in Jersey and have always loved walking on the beach and in the woods and lanes. This is where I collect the majority of products for making my pictures. I have a licence to collect items from the beaches in Jersey, but I also buy stones and pebbles from craft and DIY shops. I’ve always loved puffins, so this was my starting point. Having attended a few art courses over the years, I have started to include some acrylic paint in my work. Each item is unique but can be replicated to look similar.
Beach sand and pebbles are precious. The removal of material to create this pebble art was authorised by the Minister of the Environment. Unauthorised removal is against the law.
