Reflective Artworks

Part of an ongoing series, on canvas panel, canvas, or wood, these have been created using mixed media and recycled materials including: vintage paper, acrylic, pencils, inks and oil sticks. Each is titled and signed by me on the back, with this artist statement. Prints are currently available.

Each is created from a unique story.

Street Girl: Whilst on holiday in Melbourne, we explored the back streets, and alleyways. On a self guided walking tour we took photos of two teenage girls, just sitting, drinking wine from a flagon, who were smiling and waving at passers by. They enjoyed posing for their photo to be taken – but I often wondered about their life. This picture hints at a darker side of urban youth. 

For the Aunties has an interesting story. I have a family heritage of Indigenous Australians. Although it is for me in the distant past it is still an area I have always been interested in, and my Grandmother, and mother spent a lot of time researching all aspects of the family tree. Along the way we have learned about many sad stories, including the Stolen Generation. When I started this piece I just glued down pages torn from an old book. After painting the background the chapter title, ‘Heartbreak’ still stood out. It was from this word that I then focussed on, and I drew loosely from a photo. Although the whole work was unplanned, it really spoke to me at the end about all the years of stories in my family’s heritage. So I painted this for all my Aunties that I’ll never know, for the strength of my Grandmother and Mother, and for all mothers in general.

Series using Vintage Linen

Created on hardboard, ready to hang, these have been created using mixed media including: vintage linen, texture paste, acrylic, pencils, inks and oil sticks. Each is titled and signed by me on the back, with this artist statement.

Created out of a desire to show the beautiful artistry of old vintage linen, and doilies found at op shops, and to reflect the lighter side of life. There are currently four completed works, and further works are in progress.

Care for original artwork: display out of direct sunlight, protect from high humidity and moisture. These are only lightly sealed with a fixative. I use artist quality pigments, however due care should always be taken.

All copy write remains with me as artist. As a mixed media artist I love experimenting with many mediums, including: pastels, watercolour, acrylics, vintage ephemera, vintage linen, and found objects. Because I love to re-use and re-cycle, I will package my art using re-cycled materials before buying anything new – that is if it doesn’t end up in my art in another way!
