Below is a selection of the works I have created over the years. I have listed them from newest to oldest so that you can see how my style has evolved as I continue to explore my creative talents. I enjoy seeing what appears as I allow my intuition to guide my work. If you click on the images they will enlarge and you can read the descriptive copy.
Covid 19 has created so much disruption and pain in the world but the restrictions have provided opportunities for peace and time to create more art. I've continued with my love of nature and completed a series of works featuring varying colours of leaves. Most recently, I have been focussed on a series of abstract pieces, using an impasto paste to provide texture to my acrylic painting. I have also enjoyed continuing with my wheel throwing of tableware items.
Floral mugs - I enjoying throwing these mugs and attaching the handles. I decorated them using a 'mishima'/ engraving technique, using a slip trailer.
I called this one loose ends, as it has a few pieces of yarn and strong on it, amongst the textured acrylic paint. Covid 19 restrictions have brought some opportunities for quiet time and the space to attend to lost ends
I finished this one as the coronavirus restrictions were easing in Queensland. It felt like the world had changed somewhat, and that we were emerging from dark spaces into a lighter, brighter time.
From my abstract acrylic series, this piece reflects the setting sun shining on the studio path, after a long and happy day of creating.
I used pencil shading to create a path effect behind the watercolour leaves in this piece, inspired by a walk through the bush, not far from my studio.
Ink and watercolour on paper, with a gloss varnish adding some shine to some of the leaves.
In 2019, my work included more textiles in it, whether with fabric as a backing to the canvas, or with stitched yarns to add more detail. I continued my love of wheel throwing ceramics, and decorating the surfaces.
This work is acrylic paint, on board backed paper, with fine ink drawings. It shows my depiction of the nature and plants at Quixotica, through a morning window.
