The Coastal apartment... BEDROOM PROFILE
I was first introduced to this couple through some friends, they were travelling when they met first met and still do exploring the world together.
Having worked on some pieces for each other as gifts before I was over the moon to say the least when I received news they had purchased a home together. ( it is always exciting news from anyone) Knowing people I started curating works in my head and pitching ideas.... which we were equally excited about !! Not to mention the additional walls they would now own!!
Planning the renovations, and working on one space at time. Artwork was purchased and the room de constructed and revealed...
Starting back with a fresh white palette to lighten up the space and modernise it immediately, my art was appealing because they were able to instantly add a conversation in the space and compliment with few accessories for a fresh clean minimal style.
This custom canvas was a gift for a milestone birthday as a surprise.
Inspired by aerial views and the reefs they have visited I made this artwork I had been dreaming about... for a long while.
The brief was something blue, big and dramatic by you!
Well as if that isn't the best brief ever. Knowing the space and having images of it in my head I created something I would love to sleep under every night and own forever.. so here it is
So much of me went into this work, I hope you instantly feel refresh and inspired to explore and appreciate the curves and breaks that mother nature is bursting with.
The different stages of this artwork coming together...lots of layers involved , well worth the finished result
this artwork is 1200mmmx 1800mm and a custom commission piece.
A little sneak peek at a REEF Working coming together!!! DETAILS to come on this exciting new piece!!
Take a deep dive into the deep sea, this is the moment you have jumped off into the water before your eyes have adjusted and focused as slowly reefs appear and shapes become clearer as the salt washes away and you become apart of another world
