About "Gold Cross"
As I was mourning the death of a loved one at the time, and the fact that I chose to work on a cross, gave me a sense of strength as well as a strong connection to God. The background was painted in gold acrylic and beads were patiently arranged on the inside of the Cross.
I am drawn and inspired by everything around me, the colours and textures, especially bright and lively colours. I enjoy painting flowers as well as Fisherman Cottages, guinea-fowls and African traditional art. I am now enjoying Naive Art and the fantasy world that goes into a painting. Some of my paintings are design- orientated which I find very rewarding. This can be seen in the painting "Guinea Fowls with Feathers and Beads" which is also beaded and to which I have added guinea-fowl feathers. I also enjoy bead work and therefore occasionally incorporate beads in my paintings (Mixed Media).
