Art is a very subjective thing. Not everyone will like what you like or even think it’s art. I create what I love and hope that someone will love it too. It’s great to see my work incorporated within homes especially where a few key pieces stand out. Art really does not have to match your decor and I think a few key design features can really make the overall interior design work. I’m not an interior designer but love reading interior design magazines and visiting show homes to see how they style homes and use the different styles and sizes of art. When it comes to my paintings usually clients buy finished pieces because they find something within the artwork that appeals to them but occasionally I get requests for specific colours or themes and create something specifically for them. I’m still working from a place of painting intuitively but try to think of the client’s personality too. An original piece unique to them is such an honour to create.
I’ve had a few recently where people have simply said they want a piece of art in a certain size and colours but then left the rest to me. It’s a little scary until the final reveal. One customer recently asked me to create something for her home which was ‘simple’ and used only a limited palette,and all she said was, “You’re the artist I trust you”
Luckily she liked the final piece!
