Artwork Description:

Title: Rose

I have always loved old English Roses. Layers upon layers of petals, unfold to release the most amazing fragrances and wonderful colours that grow paler as the flower ages, before carpeting my garden with fallen blooms. The abundance of buds and opening flowers, supported by glossy green leaves, heighten the vibrancy and fullness of the Roses, creating a stunning wall of foliage and flowers along one side of my garden. This is a serene painting that draws you into its tranquility and creates a sense of calm. Enlarged, it would make an amazing statement piece in any space.

These beautiful blooms inspired a piece of art that looks deceptively simple. However, creating layers of pink petals and a background of green without any loss of definition and colour was extremely difficult. This is painted on waterproof circular paper, using alcohol inks, brushes, heat tools and metallic bronze to enhance and add definition to the petal edges.

Artist Bio:
I paint vibrant and quirky nature-inspired abstracts, uplifting landscapes, effervescent still lifes, as well as, fantasy worlds, planets and waterscapes. I use primarily alcohol-based inks on Yupo or Nara paper, which is waterproof, enabling the inks to move around. Inks are a fluid medium, although I occasionally branch out into some mixed-media artwork. My art captures moments of joy, peace and reflection in the world around me.
