The story of my new artwork “Bursting Into Life”

The story of my new artwork “Bursting Into Life”

It all began with my amazing friend Jessie telling me she kept having this idea pop in her mind that I should paint a tiger in a tropical jungle. I let the idea stew for a while and after having dreams about tigers, seeing beautiful tiger pictures everywhere, I decided my creative spirit wanted to bring this idea to life. So I picked a big 120cmx120cm canvas and on a beautiful spring day I got set up in the garden. I always paint my artwork in many layers so I was not overthinking the first layers too much as I knew much of it would be painted over and just glimpses would show through.



So I got loose with my paintbrush! It was so fun. I wasn’t thinking, planning or trying for it to look “good”. I was in the flow. I was splashing paint all over the place. Dancing around like an idiot. Doing all sorts of random brush strokes.

It was only when I stepped back from my “background that would be painted over” that I realised I loved it. It had a certain aliveness and energy to it!



I currently have the piece hanging at my airbnb property and I have to say, it makes me feel happy every time I see it.

I am really enjoying creating artwork inspired by the abundance of green and colour in foliage and plants. I think this might be a new thing for me!
