Handscapes

A unique, personal, abstract image, recording the paths of life.

“ I loved Claires’ work and wanted to have something alternative to a portrait! Claires’ handscapes are like maps of the girls hands, the lines representing journeys yet to unfold.” commissioned by Paula

Drawing details of the human form, concentrating on hands, I became fascinated by the lines and folds, seeing colours in the skin. Working on a larger scale transformed my work and presented another aspect which I call Handscapes.

Easier than sitting for a portrait, only the hand is still for preliminary sketches, then working from photographs, using pastel and coloured pencils. Available from sizes A5 – A2.
