Lady with Flowers

Lady with flowers – Mixed media textile art – 2020. I have always enjoyed using collage, mixed media, fabric and stitch in my art. In this piece I have created a painted face with acrylic on unstretched, unprimed cotton. I have them cut out flowers from fabric and stitched them on to the painting and then stretched the fabric over a frame.
I sometimes work like this because I enjoy this process. It is also very tactile. In this piece I have created an imaginary face and butterfly intuitively and added a flower wreath to her hair. I enjoy painting women’s faces as it is a calming and sensory theme that I express quite often in my work. The faces are inspired by many artworks I have seen in my life of women in art.
My exhibition, “Nouveau” is showing at The Art House, Southport and is open next week, Tuesday to Friday from 10-3 and Saturday, the last day next week from 11-4.
