Release Fight Unite

Spending the weekend away with a mate and my kids, to clear my mind after an intense week. The night in the holiday chalet,was all about, releasing the bad energy, fighting the negativity and uniting as family. This painting began with gesso on wood, textured and shaped, then coloured with Tattetered angel glimmer mists and framed with oil paint.

Bebe Canvas Art

Beautiful friends of mine recently had twins and asked if I could make them some wall art for their new nursery. Knowing that Theresa Collins had a great selection of baby boy and girl papers, I instantly thought a series of mini tiles on canvas. This is the girls half of the set of six mini artworks that I am creating. Dry embossing, glimmer mist and inking add dimension and texture to the floral, bling and ribbon trims.

SteamPunk Debutante

I was challenged to use the new Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutatne paper range. I loved the different quirky elements of it and created a 6" by 24" wall hanging, very layered, with only papers, chipboard and mounting tape to create such dimensions. I am waiting on a clock mechanism to arrive and then my artwork will be a complete working wall clock, for my hallway. Miniature mosaic tiles house a poem about the ever changing thoughts of an artists mind. Here are a few excerpts: " I am ever changing, altered and rearranging, day into night, learning the right, the turning of life" and " collate my thoughts, create my path, expression is freedom, I shall cry and I shall laugh"
