Paulette Farrell - Artist
My drawings and paintings are influenced by my life and my surroundings. I am as much at home sat in a cricket ground with my sketchbook as I am tramping through the Cheshire countryside watching the birds make their spring nests. They are all familiar to me, all vivid and real and all part of my life.
What connects my artwork are moments. I look for and enjoy special parts of life that are as much ordinary as extraordinary. A turning point in a cricket match, the glare of a disturbed bird, the old man trudging up the hill, the couple sharing the newspaper.
My artwork represents a wish to extend those moments, to make them eternal and never lose them.
In my current work I am exploring ways to be increasingly expressive, inviting the viewer to weave their own stories into the pieces.
