Affection or the lack of

This piece was requested by a friend, after I babbled at her about the greatness of recording something once hurtful in a drawing- for me when I doodle like this- the painful event becomes something distant and other than myself.

Onge Patterns

Recently I’ve been experimenting with these kind of funky patterns, inspired by various things, firstly Matisse and his famous cut-outs, the falling leaves of Autumn and experiments in automatic drawing and letting my hand do all the work and my mind rest a little! I just scan them in and tend to colour the spiky shapes in black by hand, but the rest of the block colours are just quick experiments in Photoshop! So easy and simple but they are cheerful little patterns!
