Because I'm A Mirrorball: Folklore


'Folklore' is an introspective, narrative-driven album written in lockdown 2020. I truly wanted this painting to capture the greyscale grounded feel of the album and was particularly inspired by tracks like 'The Lakes', 'Mirrorball', 'August' and 'My Tears Ricochet'. Conceptually, this abstract painting captures the trees, lakes and natural landscape viewed from behind a mirrorball and evokes a feeling of nostalgia and storytelling. This piece has a quiet, contemplative quality, much like the album itself. On an artistic level, this piece was challenging for me as I don't often work in greyscale (I am known for my use of bright, bold colour!) so it was a truly refreshing and unique experience and I love this painting.

Taylor Swift Inspired Abstract Art Collection

As a passionate artist and dedicated Swiftie, Taylor Swift's music has always been a source of inspiration for my artwork. Her storytelling, emotions, and the rich tapestry of her lyrics have guided my creative process in countless ways. With The Eras Tour coming to Liverpool, I embarked on a unique challenge: creating a painting every day for 11 days, each inspired by a different Taylor Swift album. This journey not only pushed my artistic boundaries but also deepened my connection to her music.
