“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face” – John Donne.
Since moving home to Ireland from the middle east, I have eagerly anticipated the arrival of autumn after missing it for nine years. There is no other season that uplifts my soul more. This collection aims to capture the beauty, colour, and energy of this magical time so that you can bring this warmth with you into the winter months.
“Fómhar” captures the rustling of the vivid reds, oranges, yellows, and golden leaves on windy days; the crisp, bright mornings, and the magical sunrises and sunsets on dry, sunny days.
Each painting is titled using descriptive words associated with the colours and visuals of autumn. This collection is a move away from my usual colour palette. However, I wanted to capture these autumn months permanently and leave behind memories of the joy they have brought me, and hopefully, all of us. x
“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.” -Emily Bronte.
