With ‘hopes and dreams’ Coleen seeks a positive and perfect composition from imperfect pieces using acrylic paint washes, streaks and daubs and cut tissue paper.

Inspired by traditional dream catchers symbolising protection and hope. The ‘dream dropper’ series explores human strength, how people can move forward with hopes and dreams and find the positive through the negative.

Are the dreams falling away or are they about to coat us in hope and strength? Each day can be different.

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.
