Nature and human nature underpins the work of Blue Mountains artist Coleen English-Thomas, whose experience in graphic design and creative play brings to life her arrangements of acrylic colour splashes and tissue paper.
Coleen’s artworks reflect her beliefs that in nature and people, broken can be beautiful, and that she is inspired by imperfections. She considers ‘real’ people to be beautiful people.
Circular compositions continue to appear in Coleen’s art, associating the circle with connection and community, energy, calm, strength and continuity.
