The Patterned Bird in the Trees, 2020
Acrylic on paper, 57 x 38 cm
Effie Hughes’ new work has been inspired by the natural world. The paintings begin with carefully observed drawings which pair each creature with its natural habitat. Following this Effie is able to further develop her distinctive patterns and textures for each animal or plant at the painting stage to create works which bring nature’s intricacies into sharp focus.
Effie is one of our newest studio members, joining in 2019 as part of the Intoart Foundation programme. Since then she has continued to explore new ways of working. Developing her painting skills with Acrylic and most recently moving to watercolours.
