Acrylic on Wood Panel.
"I have lovingly worked into this piece, adding texture and colour. This artwork is so special to me as it was reminder of finding myself, when I start to get lost. Getting lost into the forest I go to lose my mind and find my soul. Not until we are lost do we begin to find ourselves.
Colour, especially vibrant colour, is simply powerful. It captures our eye, our heart, our mood. Colour can vastly influence our souls, our emotions and allows us to be transported to an entirely different world, eclipsing the grayness and negativity that may surround us. Colour relationships, mixed with thick textures, allow me to express emotions and my connections to nature in a bright, intuitive and joyful manner. As an artist, colour makes me happy, no matter what the colour may be. I feel I see colours differently in our world, more vibrantly, more acutely and that beauty can overwhelm me and my work translates those feeling for all to share.
