About the the artist

'Lady with the Mauve Carnation' is one of a collection of portraits featuring spiritually beautiful women, created by me, artist Jayne Leighton Herd, exclusively for Claude & Leighton.

This fine art print features a woman wearing a wonderfully layered headdress including a mauve Carnation flower. Carnations are one of the oldest cultivated flowers, having been discovered in the ancient Roman and Greek era by a botanist named Theophrastus. 

The woman in this print is deep in thought with her head resting on her hands. Her headdress is rich with feathers and leaves, petals and vines. The birds signify her love and empathy for nature.   

At first glance the women in these portraits may simply seem enigmatic, due to their elaborate headpieces partially covering their faces. Yet the beautifully layered collages of flowers, feathers, textures, patterns, sometimes with birds and animals, are an expression of the complexity and multifaceted aspects of women.

These portraits express femininity, emotion, and imagination. Intuition, reflection and creativity.

The original is a mixed media piece. The lady is in watercolour, and her headdress is a mix of watercolour, drawn, and digitally created pieces. I then layer and blend all the elements together to create the final artwork. 

These portraits are a real passion of mine and I get lost for hours creating all the details and layers. 😊
