Daydream Series

Detail view of hand embroidered flowers in Daydream No. 4, a mixed media painting by artist Heather Elliott

My creative process often feels similar to a daydream. Both daydreaming and creating are relaxed, insulated, unhurried, and contemplative. I experience a feeling of separation, almost like hovering above reality or outside my body, yet my hands are busy and mind is awake and alive to new ideas, discoveries and connections. With these mixed-media paintings I’m offering the viewer a little window of opportunity to experience their own daydream moments – small, refreshing escapes from the world where they find peace, hope, and clarity.
