Bluebird

Bluebird is a symbol of happiness, beckoning the dawn of a new day with hopeful song reminding us things will get brighter if we hold fast with faith and carry on. They also signify the heavenly realm and when one appears before you they may be bringing messages from the spirit world, messages of knowledge and enlightenment sent by loved ones to comfort you. I created “Bluebird” by hand drawing on rice paper with ink and then using watercolours along with a beeswax resist working from light to dark. My creative works emerge via a tranquil, meditative process that frees me to explore and experiment with line, shape and colour.

This artwork is a reflective piece expressing my need to bring order to chaos, to make art that provides a peaceful and meditative experience, where I lose myself in the creative process. I created this artpiece by hand drawing on rice paper with ink and then using watercolour with a wax resist, and embellishing with gel pen accents. My creative works emerge via a tranquil, meditative process that frees me to explore and experiment with line, shape and colour.
