During the period of COVID movement restrictions we spent a lot of time walking on Hampstead Heath. Through Spring and Summer, wildflowers filled the meadows, filled us with joy and gratitude and I knew I had to paint them. I chose to create these paintings by cutting up and weaving together two painted flowerscapes.
The paintings are all made on vintage book paper. If you look closely you will discover bits of text and symbols – unexpected bits of fun. The weave adds a sense of movement and naturally entwines the meadow greens with the flowers.
A bouquet of blues and purples. A memory of the little Forget-Me-Not flowers that dot Hampstead Heath meadows.
