COLLECT Dooney Lives

Dooney Lives is a new, major autobiographical series, available to view on this website and as Dooney Lives on Instagram (with images cropped to fit the format).

Works from Dooney Lives are available directly from Hazel Dooney. They are designed to be hung individually or in groups, regardless of chronological order. Uniformity of format and mounting enables collectors to add new works from the series at any time.

Each artwork is mounted by Julie Higham, a framer with over 20 years experience. She was recommended to the artist by master craftsman Graham Reynolds on his retirement.

Higham uses 100% cotton 8 ply Alpharag mat. It is acid and lignin free and buffered with calcium carbonate for added protection against acid migration. The colour of the Alpharag is a shade of white chosen to compliment the colour of the watercolour paper. Each artwork is attached to the mat using Japanese hinge paper and pure wheat starch adhesive. The front and back Alpharag mats are attached to each other using linen tape with pure wheat starch adhesive. When mounted, the final size of each artwork is 38cm high x 32cm wide (14.96  x 12.59 inches).

Mounted works are wrapped in archival tissue, flat-packed and delivered by courier (nationally and internationally). Mounting, packing and delivery are overseen by the artist and included in the price.
