ABOUT BEATRICE BOURHIS
Visiting Barcelona years ago and seeing the beautiful Architecture and mosaic work by Antonio Gaudi sparked my creative path.
After a lot of research, experimentation and practical experience I started working with mosaic. My initial works using found objects (stones, shells, slate etc.) and tiles, led to explorations of colour relationships and the development of my own mixed media techniques.
I'm mainly self taught, which has given me the freedom to experiment and to develop my own way.
I create abstract art works using a wide range of materials like perspex, acetate, glass, metal, natural objects, acrylic & oil paint and combining them in an unconventional way.
Experimentation & play are an important part of the way I work, but also my experience within the past 15 Years shows the quality and refinement in my works.
Inspiration comes from a wide range of sources, especially the beautiful environment I’m surrounded by.
My aim is to create art works which give an uplifting feeling and sense of joy and lightness.
I love the abstract art form, because it gives the mind freedom of imagination.
