About This Piece
Central piece from the Cosmos collection which I completed in 2009. This piece was inspired by my re-reading the book Cosmos, by Carl Sagan and I just wanted to make something beautiful and decorative. I've used lots of different media on this, the base is acrylic but there are indian inks, handmade papers and weave all incorporated into the final piece.
I'm a mixed media artist, working mainly in collage. My inspiration comes from many sources, but my focus is texture, depth and colour.
I've got a particular passion for layering, building up colour and density over time, the painting growing organically directly on the canvas.
As my work is very textural, it's often easier to appreciate if you can see it close-up or from a few different angles. I have lots of close-up photos which I can send over, please just email me and I'll arrange.
I hope that people find my artwork both interesting and decorative.
