This large-format work transports the viewer to more serene spaces. It is ideal for a relaxed family living space. I would hang it as part of a collection with a few smaller, more detailed works or black-and-white photographs. A couple of large, slip-covered natural linen sofas and recycled wide-plank oak floorboards. Walls painted in a pale taupe and army green velvet side chairs with a collection of hand-blocked printed accent cushions.

This work takes me to my annual family holiday down the coast. Incredibly refined and soft in tone, this work is very easy on the eye. Hung in a waiting room, foyer or reception area, the large scale would calm anyone sitting there. I think this piece would take a lot of people to a holiday or past time, making it the perfect work to hang where many will see.
