Artwork for Ciara Lewis
A diverse painting practice using a wide variety of materials and reclaimed media I am creatively inspired by my surrounding rural environment as well as my travel diaries.
I feel it is a vital part of who I am and how I interpret the world around me.
My practice has recently expanded to include sculpture and expanded painting but still retains a strong landscape narrative. The latest pieces are all inspired by my local rural environment focusing on landmark oak trees on familiar walks and the beauty of tin sheds and barns.
These days I work mainly alone in my studio but have a lot of experience of school, communtiy and inter generational workshops. I hope to expand my practice to include workshops from my studio on a seasonal basis.
