Would you like to have something beautiful that is the talking point of your room?
Is your mind so busy you can't shut it off? Would you like something that helps you take a few minutes out of your busy day to stop and be quiet and reflect?
My girls tell a story. What that story is, is different for everyone. What emotion they envoke is different for everyone depending on who your are feeling each day.
They are calming so you can quiet your mind. They are elegant so you can feel inspired. They are fascinating so you can feel inquisitive. They are textural so you can see something new every time you look.
This is a selection of some of the beautiful girls I have made over the years. Each one is very different. I love to use all sorts of materials to make my mixed media portraits such as paper for collage, washi tape, acrylic paints, watercolour paints, watercolour pastels, posca pens, gel pens, modelling paste, ink and jewellery.
Most of the time you see a painting and if you are not an artist, it is hard to know what went into creating it. I enjoy taking progress shots and sharing them on social media and on me website so you can see all the layers and love that went into them. I hope that this helps the viewer to appreciate them more.
* What do I see?
* What do I feel?
* What do I think?
* What previous experiences have I had that leads me to think these things?
* What is the artist trying to convey?
It is this contemplation that helps us to escape our busy lives, be in the moment and just enjoy beauty.
