The Art of Mother Nature on Nature

It would be years of practise, journeys, crooked paths, mountains to fall, oceans to swim, battles won and battles lost. It would be the day 25 years down the dirt road, wise hands gently offered the layers of paperbark. Not so tiny fingers anymore reached out and held the thick texture. Remembering the feeling. The dusty, chalky feeling. The knowledge exchanged silently. Coming back to the roots. This would be for later.

Sitting unnerved on a shelf, drying and flaking. Spreading debris anytime a gust of breeze passed. Slowly the layers were peeled. Ink was splashed and the feeling of earth and art connected. After years of practise, learning the layers of bark, learning the ink application and mastering the craft of simple translation of knowledge, the paperbark art series were born.

Art in it's simplest form encapsulating soul and earth. The Art of Mother Nature on Nature

Testimonials

I fell in love with "Ghosts of Mother Ocean" the minute I saw it. It holds pride of place in my home. The intricacy of each shell, the delicate colour palette and natural wood frame lend themselves so beautifully to a neutral and coastal aesthetic. For me a reminder of the magical coastline on which I grew up and have the joy of calling home. I just feel calm when I look at this piece. These prints are stunning and yes, I am already eyeing off two more artworks from Skye's Desert Series and if I can't decide I may buy both!

I have two of Skye's paperbark pieces and I doubt I will stop there. They're so unique, dainty & beautiful. I love that they allow the recycling of such a simple piece of nature that we normally wouldn't bat and eyelid at & really bring the outside in. Skye's freehand designs are intricate yet so simple & each of the pieces look great in their custom frames. If you are looking for a truly unique piece of art, this is what you're after.

I once read that if you see something beautiful in someone, always tell them. The beauty that overwhelmed me when I came across Skye's store & as I spoke to her about her art, moved me to tears.

As my eyes darted from the majestic contours of seashells to the magical details of Australian flowers, my gaze finally landed on a stunning piece featuring the Sturt Desert Pea. This original paperbark instantly spoke to me & reminded me of a favourite novel written by Holly Ringland "The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart". 'Australian flora often thrives under harsh conditions, in extreme landscapes and weather'. We are called to tell our stories & rest in the restorative beauty of Mother Nature.

Thank you for holding space for our beautiful conservation at the markets Skye. I will forever treasure meeting you & being witness to your art. Every time I look at my Sturt Desert Pea, it brings a smile to my face and reminds me to "have courage, take heart".
