Watercolour 2015-2016

My current and ongoing watercolour artworks are a lighthearted and evolving endeavor. Design based with thoughtful simplicity and a dreamy colour scheme. This series is an open platform to explore a multitude of subjects and personal interests including: environmental preservation, local landscapes, travel, symbolism, pattern and abstraction in the natural world.  Inspired by shared and common experiences these works intend to connect and engage viewers with a sense of place, memory and familiarity.

Watercolour, while unforgiving at the best of times, is an intuitive, meditative and therapeutic creative process. One which I gladly encourage others to try, and I enjoying teaching.  It is the perfect medium to compliment with music and get lost in the rhythm of time. Slowly building up each layer, until a translucent dream world or feeling transpires.

Selected images. All frames are uniquely refinished and collected to compliment each artwork.
