Follow Your Heart Abstract Face Painting

Follow Your Heart from the "Words That Hurt" Collection

Original SOLD, prints available

This abstract portrait series explores the power of positivity as it covers collaged criticisms with uplifting phrases.

It began with an idea - could I take critical words that had crushed people’s confidence and collage them into a painting. In doing so only remnants of the words would remain, like that wound that never quite heals.

And this is where I stalled with the collection, it felt like something was missing and I was putting too much pressure on myself that my work didn’t flow. I gave myself a break and worked on simpler pieces.

Then over Christmas it hit me, I wanted to be able to bring a more positive feel to the collection. So I decide to introduce positive phrases to cancel out the negative ones.
