leather on canvas, 11"x 18"
Clark’s on Main
1090 Main Street, Dorset
A gift of renewal:
This unique artistic creation crafted from leather evokes memories of sitting by summer gardens reminding us of our connection to Earth and our love of Nature. A personal space where we find solace and renewal.
“Winter Bouquet” offers you flowers in winter!
Shaping this vision took careful planning and a defined process. Step by careful step, I assembled each flower carefully, layering petals and leaves with the use of precision tools and patience; a deliberate and painstaking procedure. I often felt like I was putting a puzzle together one piece at a time. The rich dark brown background reminds us of seeds planted in the deep earth waiting for spring.
A renewal of hope and love are captured in this bouquet. From a small bud, flowers of all varieties and colours bloom gifting us with beauty and joy, then they rest, and bloom once more as perfect as the first time. A reminder to us all that we can be renewed too!
I offer you “Winter Bouquet” full of personality, warmth and colour. Enjoy
I love the challenge of crafting leather into landscapes and designs inspired by nature. To honour animals, I transform their gift into art. It has taken years to gather colours and textures that unlock my imagination to create artwork that reflects the beauty and majesty of Mother Earth.
Artwork that evokes memories of mountains, beaches and gardens. I imagine, I plan and I design every piece as a unique picture, transforming leather into distinctive, vibrant and personal images that run deep in my imagination from time spent in nature growing up in the countryside. I still live in the country which continues to bring inspiration to my imagination. For fun I craft works of whimsy incorporating shapes, a wide variety of colours and just for fun I mix in textures for added depth!! I have a series I call “Moon and Stars” so you can hold a wish for yourself or a loved one.
The warmth of my artwork adds beauty to any room. You can visit my studio by appointment only. You can contact me via email at email@example.com. Thank you
