Dorothy Berry-Lound Profile picture This mixed media piece has an interesting story, though it didn't set out that way! I had some glitter craft glue that I wanted to use in an abstract painting to see how it worked. I knew the glitter would add a grainy effect that might be quite attractive. After a white underpainting, I used several different colours of glitter, all applied over the canvas with a palette knife. I then added broad sweeps of pink going one way on the canvas and then turquoise across the bottom third. It was still wet but, as it turns out, luckily I took a photograph as I was really pleased with the piece. Imagine my shock when I went back the next day to see how the piece was drying to find that the painting looked entirely different! The glitter glue was in the process of completely absorbing the acrylic paint and the surface was now blotchy but shiny and shimmering. Not at all what I had intended. Normally I scan my paintings but in this case at least I had a photograph. I like the colours in this piece, it reminds me of a woodland so I called it The Dream Forest. Note, this piece is really grainy which is the effect of the glitter.

Born in the South of England I now live half way up a mountain in Umbria, Italy. I work from my art studio looking out over fabulous views of the Italian countryside. I am so happy to share my artwork with you.

An artist and blogger, I specialize in photo art and acrylic painting. For my photo art, I start with my own photographs and work on them digitally to capture the feeling I want to convey with the final image. For my abstract work, I literally 'go with the flow' and follow where my heart wants to take me as I work.

I create art to make your heart smile, capturing the spirit of place in towns and villages, or creating art to enhance the energy of your home or workplace. Take your time to look through my portfolio, I hope you enjoy it.
