Artwork for Berna Pullen
Friendship in a Time of Lockdown
I See You
Colourful, intriguing and uplifting. I like to inject a narrative in my creations. I have no loyalty to one medium but allow the subject I'm focusing on lead me. This is why I often create collages or mixed media pieces.
In my other role as a teacher I've used felting, pattern making, printing, gardening, and theatre/drama, stage design to teach and create. I have always promoted other cultures to encourage inclusion and tolerance within my line of work and this has often led me to look for inspiration from artistic traditions from other nations and applying their styles in my own artwork and craft activities.
Being an artist means freedom: to express ideas, to have fun, to exorcise angst.
Artist, maker. Lover of pattern, colour and storytelling.
