My mixed media original one-of-a-kind artwork is entitled Golden Sunlight Shining Through a Dense Bramble Thicket. This artwork is inspired by my love of nature's colours, textures and patterns. With this artwork, I wanted to incorporate the unsung heroes in our gardens and landscapes... plants that are often disliked or even hated, but plants that nevertheless endure. They survive. And they even create something useful for animals - both in terms of helping purify the air as indeed all green plants do, but also in terms of producing fruit that is edible by birds and humans alike. I wanted to focus on the humble bramble (or blackberry) which is often found growing uncontrollably through train tracks, wild unkempt landscapes, the backs of gardens that have been untouched for years, and derelict sites. I believe that all plants deserve our respect, even those that we might not like. Especially if the fundamental reason for why we don't like them is because their extraordinary ability to survive and thrive in any and all conditions - there is something wonderful about that ability to persevere and to explore - whether it is a plant spreading beyond its original spot or whether it's humans exploring the world.
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.
