My mixed media original one-of-a-kind artwork is entitled Golden Wheat Fields at the End of the Evening’s Walk. This artwork is inspired by my love of nature's colours, textures and patterns. As I'm an avid walker and hiker, I love walking in nature. It gives me such energy and soothes my soul. Since moving to London nearly 10 years ago, I've particularly fallen in love with the Thames river. Often, I do Thames walks - whether in London or further afield where the walks along the river are much more rural. You get a very different feeling of the Thames and the English countryside when walking along the river for hours and hours. You see the surrounding landscape so differently... you experience it more fully when you're walking (rather than driving or cycling). This painting was inspired by the end of a long walk along the Thames when my husband and I arrived at the village where we were staying for the night. Right before we went into the village, there was a field of wheat. Maybe it was the fact that it was the golden hour and the sun was hitting the landscape in a soft warm glow light, or because it was slightly windy so the wheat field was swaying in a magical way, but I was completely mesmerised. I was intoxicated by the experience of being alongside this wheat field which was meant to be nothing more than an agricultural crop, but which I found intoxicating. Much to my husband's chagrin, I spent almost 1 hour photographing the field, taking videos and just being... by which time the colours of the sunset had started to show themselves in the sky (hence the hints of purple in my artwork).
This painting is part of my Woven Contemplation series, inspired by the history and tradition of textiles. I find textiles endlessly comforting, whether they are a jumper knitted by my mother, a scarf that I've knitted, or some Christmas tree ornaments that I've hand stitched and embroidered. Textiles are comforting and historic. From a visual perspective, textiles have so much texture and pattern, and this is part of what I was trying to evoke with these textile-inspired series of artworks.
I strive to create artwork that is beautiful and inspiring... artwork that transports the viewer into another world... art that is calming and serene but also full of life and energy. I adore strong colours that jump out of the painting and grab attention. The bolder the better! I've created this artwork using inks, acrylic paint and water on luxury heavyweight Fabriano watercolour paper. The thickness and texture of this specialty paper allow the inks, paint and water to play together and enable me to create some wonderful patterns and textures. To add some additional detail and interest to this artwork, I've also used some white pencil and paint pen.
I am driven by a need to create. I’m happiest when I’m creating something beautiful – something that inspires, lifts up and brings joy and colour to the world. Something that hopefully others love to look at and gives them joy.
