In Loving Memory

Chrissy Foreman

This week I received some crushing news that a family friend I grew up with had passed away last week whilst holidaying in Bali with friends. I had been besties with his sister throughout high-school and the family had become like a second one to me.

Although I hadn't seen Tyler in years, I was still in contact with his sister Tam. When I heard of is passing I was overcome with grief, knowing how close the family was and the thought of the loss they must be experiencing. He was just 31 years old.

I wanted to do something - anything - to help ease their pain and share my love but I couldn't think what to do. How can anyone make up for such a loss? So, I did what I know. I painted.

In Loving Memory of Tyler Kennedy

I painted a very special moment from Ty's funeral; a moment capturing his loved ones all gathered together in a board circle in the ocean, in his name. He'd touched so many lives in his lifetime that the board circle broke the Guinness book of records for the most people gathered at sea on a board.

As I painted, I cried and I felt and I did all I could to do this moment justice. I painted this so his big sister Tam can always look at it, knowing he was loved, she was loved and will always supported by those who love them.

In Loving Memory of Tyler Kennedy. 1986 - 2017.

Hello, beauty.

Things have been super busy in my world lately and whenever this happens, most of my Art-making time happens in my Art journal. But I have managed to complete a few finished pieces and pop them up in my shop this afternoon.

My Latest Show

Chrissy Foreman

This weekend I installed a new exhibition at the Beans and Green Cafe in the nostalgic old town of Ipswich. Recently dubbed 'Hipswich'; this is an area filled with lots of hidden pockets of awesome, creative talent. This little venue is super cute, with bean bags out the front and organic offerings served with heart. My kind of place!

The Artworks I'm exhibiting here are from my 'Creating with Feeling' series; a collection of succinct square 8" X 8" mixed media Artworks on canvas.

This a wholly new series for me in that they are all small pieces with a lot more free, raw emotion in each piece. Rather than prettying them up to be all 'perfect', I have let it all hang out with a combination of edgy, scratchy line work, bold contrasts and spirit symbols in collage.

They were incredibly nourishing to create and felt like they emerged directly from my Intuitive Muse and onto the canvas.
