Painting and Mosaics

Barbara Gogerly

I predominately painted in oils until the mosaic bug bit me. I still paint, though, and now I'm also playing with acrylic as something different.

About my work

Is there a link between gardening and your creative practice?

I'm also a gardener and often use the garden as inspiration for paintings and mosaics. Gardening is a leveller. Getting my hands in the dirt is wonderful for working through problems with my art, finding inspiration and calm in life.

What will you show and share on the day?

I'm happy to talk about both painting and mosaics, and gardening in general.

What's in your veggie patch?

That depends on the season. Currently, I've got strawberries, tomatoes, bush and climbing beans, garlic, zucchini, asparagus, salad greens, potatoes, and herbs.

Where will we find you?

I'll be at Janet Wylie's Urban Farm
