My Urban Garden and Landscape artworks are created using photos of gardens or landscapes as inspiration. I aim to capture and recreate the energy and vibrancy of these environments by using the following processes:
- Layer 1: Acrylic paint is used in an intuitive manner to communicate the natural vibrancy of the natural environment in these images. - Layer 2: Spray Paint is used to spray a geometric stencil grid over this natural environment stamping out the planned organised way we have developed our natural environments. - Layer 3: Hand embroidery is used to connect the natural and urban layers building connections through patterns that highlights the flaws and features of these environments.
