This piece is about freedom.  Freedom of expression, freedom of movement.  Something that has impacted all of our lives in recent years.  It's evocative of birds in the sky, weightless and unburdened, soaring through the air - free and untethered. 

It is an original painting created with ink, acrylic and gold leaf that catches the light as you move around the painting.   

There are small details that can be relished up close and more impactful marks to be appreciated from further away.  

I loved creating this mixed media painting - even the process of creating it felt free and liberating.  I moved around a lot, danced and had so much fun just letting loose.  I'll be very sad to see this one go as it has a special place in my heart.

Taking Flight, original mixed media painting, 4' by 3', stretched over a wooden frame.

If you would like a float frame around this piece I'd suggest either white or wood, depending on your decor.  I'd be happy to advise and also get it framed with my bespoke fine art framer in Cornwall.  Est cost for float frame is approx £75. 

The float frame gives the appearance of a frame floating around the painting i.e. there is a 5mm gap between the painting and the frame.  It will work beautifully for this piece but there is no obligation, it can simply be purchased and hung as-is.

Artist Info"My work is heavily influenced by years of training as a professional dancer. At the age of 11, I left home and went to theatre school to train full-time and where I learned to express emotion through movement rather than words.

This love for energy and expression, learned through dance, later combined with an interest in quantum physics, energy and universal connection, now informs my current work which is expressive, uplifting, soulful and immersive."

All reproductions in my store are Giclee reproductions and are created using a huge, top of the range printer that uses a wide range of inks applied so finely you cannot see the dpi a bit and are very long-lasting.

They are printed on flat artist canvas and can framed or unframed (paper prints) and stretched / framed in a float frame for canvas prints.

The prints are super quality and capture almost all the detail of the original.  

All Giclee Reproductions are printed to order by a local printing house and take 7-10 days to arrive back in my studio, then I package, and ship them to you asap.  

I can offer commissions if you are looking for something in the style I create. I don't offer commissions in other styles or copying other artists.
