Artwork for Maggie Davis
After the Storm
Transient World I-V
Transient World VIII
I am an abstract artist working in mixed media including the use of inks, acrylics and dyes on both paper and cloth often using stitch and word to enhance the pieces. Works start by playing around with colour in any of the forms mentioned and seeing where is leads me but leaving people to see what they want to see.
Being an artist broadens my perspective on life and enhances my appreciation for our world and all it has to offer in colour, texture and form from where my inspiration is drawn. It helps me breath and is good for my soul, it is my Ikigai.
I am a mixed media artist
I am not formally trained, but have spent my life doing courses in local colleges and being taught by the leaders of the field in colour appreciation and mark making and design.
