Artists Respond to a Changing World

And feel free to share this art far and wide!
Hello, my work falls into three categories; Pure abstract, semi abstract (more detailed work mainly depicting flowers seedheads and nature scenes but in a contemporary stylized way) and thirdly more representational work.
I switch between the three all the time depending on what’s going on around me, what is influencing me at the time and what has inspired me. Also my mood at the time and which type would suit my expression at the time.
I like to work in different media pastels, acrylics, oils, watercolour and mixed media including inks. I enjoy experimenting not just with styles but also with media.
Abstract work is very much about experimentation I am in love with colour and I often use colours that harmonise in any one piece, as seen by the examples shown – Suns Surface and Paradise. Techniques are important too so that the piece is truly original, so I may use several techniques, for example laying on paint with a spatula and spraying with coloured inks. These tend to be produced quickly with many decisions being made at once, to produce a pulled together piece of work.
My semi abstract work is inspired by nature, my garden, lots of flowers and seedheads which are to me endlessly fascinating. Unlike the pure abstracts these works take my time as my imagination and design skills, come into play. With these works I may use several techniques, a certain style being that of repeating an image of say poppies as in ‘Welsh Poppies’ and the style can be quite graphic at times.
I have to say that it is my intention to produce a well turned out piece of work, however my main aim is to convey my design skills how I created a composition, using my imagination.
Finally I have to say I love my work and hope that others do too!
