SAKURA

In 2018 I began a new body of work 'Sakura' meaning cherry blossom.  I have brought together my kintsugi bowls and the beauty of nature. Fascinated by cherry blossoms ever since I was a little girl I anticipate their arrival each year.  These delicate and ephemeral flowers, deeply imbued with symbolism and meaning, represent fragility, resilience, beauty and the preciousness of life.  Such attributes sit easily with the principles of wabisabi.
Now I am looking at native Irish trees,especially the ones that blossom or display catkins on bare branches like hazel and willow. There's a myriad of trees that bloom here in Ireland - not only cherry but apple, pear, plum, damson, hawthorn, whitethorn, blackthorn... and many, many more. I like the idea of bringing this new element into my work.
I regularly add to this online collection. At any given time there are a number of pieces in various stages of readiness. Click the enquire button or give me a call if there is a particular blossom type or colour combination which appeals to you,  or you are interested in any of the paintings listed below.
