Beautiful Mixed Media Art

This is my Mum's art.

I remember as a child Mum used to draw quite a lot and my Uncle Alan used to paint sailing ships which I found endlessly fascinating.  Mum, like her brother is very talented artistically but bringing up a family & running a business came first for years, a familiar story!  She probably lacked confidence as well as time. 

Recently retired, she's started painting again.  She started out with acrylics, then took up watercolor, especially birds which she is very good at, and now has discovered a passion for the abstract.  She uses a lot of collage, mixed media, and really likes to experiment with pushing the boundaries.

I'm very proud of her - go check her out!
