A COLLECTION OF PAINTINGS, CELEBRATING CONNECTION BETWEEN FAMILIAR AND THE TREASURED
"No one can posses an afternoon of rain beating against the window, or the serenity of a sleeping child, or the magical moment when the waves break on the rocks. No one can posses the beautiful things of this Earth, but we can know them and love them."
I created this mixed media painting collection during the lockdown questioning what I valued most in my life. The quarantine helped me realise how much I just needed to sit down and be in the present. This mindfulness helped me acknowledge the mundane things as light passing through the washing liquid or paying attention to the fabric folds as my son enjoyed his sleep. Each fold in the fabric has its own story to tell, we just need to be present to acknowledge many other stories spellbindingly appearing alongside us.
I hope my paintings bring calm to your life, intrigue you and evoke personal memories for you too.
