Acrylic on wood, ready to hang.
Signed certificate of authenticity.
The Strays and Waifs series of paintings began in 2018 after I completed a US based intensive painting program for artists.
One of my key outcomes of the program was the knowledge that I wanted to make art that was playful, authentic, uplifting and involved Connection - to both subject and viewer.
My artistic journey took me on a slight tangent as non representational and abstracted landscapes vied for my time and attention. Yet these quirky characters continue to appear in my work, almost as if they are being made not by me, but through me.
What fascinates me still is that they arrive unintentionally and with regular frequency.
The pieces in this new series are richly textured, layered with thick paint and sometimes collage before being sanded back to reveal their secrets beneath.
The surface and the subjects remain intentionally imperfect which adds to the lightheartedness of each piece. Most importantly, they are intended to bring lightness, joy and a sense of relatable humour just as we all need it most.
These are unique and original pieces so I strongly recommend if you are a dog lover or feel a connection to any of these Strays and Waifs, you add them to your collection, you’ll be glad you did.
Thank you for supporting my work.
