“My greatest influence is the natural world, revelling in the playful patterns of both the wild landscape and my own garden. I use a palette knife to apply thick layers of acrylic paint, which is then embellished with silver or copper leaf, and incorporate stencilled motifs for graphic affect.’
‘I truly believe art should sing to you, not just in a gallery, but everyday.’ - Naomi Crowther.
