Welcome to my Abstract Doorways Collection! It's a triple first: it's the first time my mixed media paintings have been exhibited, my first virtual exhibition and it's the first one for the Balmacara Estate too. Simply aiming to bring cheerful paintings into those corners of your home that you didn’t know needed the cheer.
Using doorways as my inspiration, My mixed media paintings are created using collage as a base layer and then painting in acrylic using a palette knife. The combination of the collage and palette knife painting forms a textured effect that draws your eye into all the nooks and crannies that the paint and pattern have settled into. As you know, I've only recently ventured into painting on collage with a palette knife, I’m loving the bright colours and undulating surface and hope you love them too.

I'm also taking the step of being part of the #artistsupportpledge with these paintings. You'll see my social media posts reflecting this and the images below explain the pledge:
