Description

I created the Squiggle series during a difficult time post-surgery. I wanted to surround myself with playfulness and colour, so I sat in bed and drew the happiest squiggles and shapes in the brightest combinations I could think of. By the time I made 88 pieces I was excited and energized and ready to get moving again! When you look at these squiggles I hope they spark in you the same feelings of joy, hope and excitement.

These artworks are handmade and individual with each one representing a moment in my recovery. They may contain imperfections such as colour bleeding, slight tears in the borders or crooked edges. As in both art and life, these imperfections shouldn’t make them any less beautiful.

Every work comes with a signed certificate of authenticity and some bonus stickers!

All paper pieces are lightly coated with a matte varnish and presented in a glass fronted frame. You can safeguard them by displaying them out of direct sunlight.

This piece was lovingly created by
