“Painting icons and natural beauty from around the world – of land, sky and water – is something I will continue to explore and gain inspiration from. I love incredible architecture juxtaposed with nature and want to paint more iconic buildings and swimming pools set against the natural world. I am old enough to have seen the world change, I paint the world as it is with the knowledge of what it has been and the fear of what will it will become ecologically. My Art as Fabric business is all about making beautiful patterns and designs for people to enjoy as they go about their everyday lives. A simple throw cushion with one of my island paintings, or my overheads of icons such as Sydney Opera House and Bondi Beach can add colour and light to the everyday and I consult with fashion designers to make beautiful fabrics for their collections. And for those people who already know and love these images, my icon-inspired designs perhaps provide an opportunity to hold something cherished ‘just a little bit closer’.” – Stephanie Burns
