A recent studio visit from a client looking to purchase a new painting for her home led to the question ‘What actually is mixed media?’ As most of my paintings are created using ‘mixed media’ I thought I should explain my process and the media I use.
my life without art would be intolerable, without colour, without excitement, without stimulation, without connection – so the question should be ‘how can I NOT do art?’ I mean, just imagine life if there was no art?…….
Worms wriggle, composting the soil and determined to rise
Blindly trying to find their prize
A symphony of sounds echo, transformation the tune
The orchestra of nature performs to the March Spring Full Moon
The conductor revered as cocoons are rejected
Wake up, be ready, it’s time to grow, be celebrated
Skins of the past are shed like a snake
Inevitable growth, no longer opaque
A miracle performed, nature is truth
Take that leap now, transform like a butterfly searching for eternal youth
Your scars can come too, they may be your best attire
You are a miracle, complete and ready to inspire
