“Recovery can be slow and painful but it’s necessary.”

I painted this following a period of depression as a tool for healing, recovery and growth. It is an emotive piece; a visual representation of the healing process that I, and many others go through, on their path to wellness and mental health.

Recovery is an original acrylic painting on a deep edged canvas measuring 12 x 12 x 1.5 inches with unpainted white edges. The darkness of pain disperses and feathers leaving patches of emotion that gradually lessen and heal. It has been signed on both the front and back.

“I can never adequately express the warmth and joy I find in the rays of the sun.”

Ray Of Sunshine is an original acrylic painting on canvas measuring 5 x 7 x 0.7 inches with unpainted white edges and is full of colour and texture. Playing with modelling paste and cool greens pops of colour began to show themselves on the canvas. Even in print the heavy areas of texture can be seen. It became an abstract take on the sun’s rays, reaching out and encompassing everything they touch in bubbles of warmth and light. It has been signed on both the front and back.

“Nestled within tightly packed pods are the seeds of life.”

Seed Pods is an original acrylic painting on canvas measuring 5 x 7 x 0.7 inches with unpainted white edges and is full of plenty of interesting marks and effects. Inspired by the hidden treasure of seed pods, something I love to find and collect on nature hunts, Seed Pods is soft and dreamy. The background is earthy and yet retains a dreamlike, unfocused quality, accentuating the colours of the seed pods themselves and allowing them, and the seeds that peek out from the cases, to pop out. It has been signed on both the front and back.

“Connecting all realms of existence since the beginning of time.”

 The tree of life is a symbol that has found it’s way into many systems of belief over time. It is said to connect all of the realms of existence and hold the knowledge of each within it’s branches. Is it any wonder that the tree then is reminiscent of a brain? Tree Of Life is a silhouette painting over a setting sky, peaceful and forever present and rooted on the hillside.

Tree Of Life is an original acrylic painting on canvas measuring approximately 8 x 8 x 0.7 inches . The sky is made up of layers of muted acrylic colours that have been roughened for a worn, slightly aged look which sets the dark brown of the tree silhouette off nicely. It has been signed on both the front and back.

“When water has something to say, it waves.”

Wave is an energetic water inspired painting. I love listening to the sea and watching each wave as it forms and crashes into shore. Sometimes it whispers but the day I painted Wave it shouted with a voice of texture, foam and layers of different tones and colours. Do you hear it’s voice? It is one that is easy to get lost in.

Wave is an original acrylic painting on a deep edged canvas measuring 12 x 12 x 1.5 inches with unpainted white edges, full of different marks, texture, depth of colour and layers. It has been signed on both the front and back.

It has been time to revisit and finish some of the dreaded WiPs. City roots is an acrylic on acrylic board piece with plenty of layers and colour that speaks to me of the need to recognise and coexist with nature despite the development humans press on the world. We put down our own roots with what we build and the lives we lead as surely as nature does. This piece is available for sale.
