Darling I'm A Nightmare Dressed Like A Daydream: 1989


The synth-pop brilliance of '1989' called for a bright, cheerful and energetic approach. Tracks like 'Blank Space', 'Style' and 'Clean' inspired a vibrant, colourful blue painting with reminiscent of a crystal blue sky and ocean waters in the summer. sunshine This painting celebrates reinvention, freedom, and the exuberant joy of finding yourself in bustling city of New York City! Lyrics like 'the flowers that we'd grown together died of thirst', 'cherry lips, crystal skies' and 'clear blue waters, high tide, cam and brought you in' were a great source of inspiration for this piece alongside the synonymous beachy and liberating vibes of the album.

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.
