Impressions of My Garden Series

 Impressions of My Garden is an abstract representation of how I visualise the impressions I wish to create in my new garden. Having recently retired, it is my intention to create a beautiful garden. While I don’t exactly know how I want to design my new garden, I do know the feelings I wish to create, so here they are. The collage process was liberating because I could repurpose magazines, texts and old paintings, laying these down as a background surface using gel mediums. The surfaces were built up using layers of acrylic paints, glazes and stamps created from found objects.
