Artwork Description:

Title: Pond patterns

As the light changes throughout the day, the shapes and patterns of the surrounding flora cast interesting shadows and reflections upon the pond surface. A sudden movement of a newt or fish from below captures the eye for a split moment. It always gives me a feeling of calm and excitement at the same time.

I have used layers of transparent and opaque paint to build up the textures and patterns I see when I look into my garden pond.

Artist Bio:

I am a Derbyshire-based, artist/illustrator and art tutor.

I have a degree in textile design, and a masters from Central St Martins in Communication Design/Illustration.

My inspirations include natural history, explorers and naturalists, Hitchcock films, kitchen sink dramas, ghosts & haunted housesĀ  and Agatha Christie and Daphne du Maurier novels.
