‘Flourish’ by Elizabeth Sullivan [acrylic on canvas 8 x 10"]
Elizabeth is a mixed media artist from Sydney who paints in a semi abstract, expressive style. Her artistic inspiration is drawn from elements of beauty found in everyday life, a love of pattern, flora, fauna and varying landscapes. Her artworks endeavour to kindle a sensory reaction/spontaneous response that will connect with the viewer and encourage their own interpretation.
'I am supporting Honour Her'....
I am taking part in the “Honour Her” campaign because I wish to honour every woman who is, or has battled gynaecological cancer. I have painted a single blooming peony flower. Peonies have significant historical and mythological significance and many different meanings and symbolism. Though delicate in appearance they are strong and resilient and have healing qualities; their roots, seeds and flowers were frequently used in medicine. They symbolise honour and compassion and thus connect beautifully to all strong and determined women who, by no choice of their own, battle their cancer journey head on, with strength, determination and resilience.
