“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.

“My heart, it bleeds all over the bed.”

My Heart is a small, original mixed media painting on canvas measuring approximately 5 x 7 x 0.7 inches with unpainted white edges. We have all experienced heart ache in life, that feeling that our hearts are haemorrhaging life blood, crying their own tears of pain for a lost love or opportunity. At one such point in my life this is the raw painting that surfaced from it; dark, textured, patchy and filled with interest from the layered ‘bandaging’ beneath to the wire and garnet areas that spring forward from the heart itself.

“At the root of the chaos of life is a place of calm connecting all things, it is the orange/red ball.”

I spent many years training as a Chios Healer and Master Teacher, which is a relatively new system of energy healing. One of the basic meditational symbols for finding peace and connection to the Universe through this system is that of the orange-red ball. It has become a symbol of calm for me, like a shield to the craziness going on all around me. Do you feel what it is to be the orange-red ball?

Orange-Red Ball is a small original acrylic painting on canvas measuring 5 x 7 x 0.7 inches with unpainted white edges and would be ideal stood on or hung in an altar, shrine or in a meditational space. It features a smooth, flat orange-red ball surrounded by heavy textured blue acrylic, black spirals and tendrils and silver highlights to the background. 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.
