Here's a taster of the work that I've done this year. Ink and watercolour drawings inspired by everyday moments, people and places. Odd and happy things that punctuate life. I'll be displaying and selling prints, cards and the original artwork, over 50 doodles. I'll be in my studio at The Jade Tree as part of Open Studios 2016.
My still life work is inspired by Mousehold Heath in Norwich, where I spent a lot of time as a child, playing, making dens and going for walks with my family. My grandmother’s house backed onto the heath, so my sister and I spent most Sunday mornings exploring and having adventures. Each painting uncovers the abstract qualities of plants, trees and seedheads, closely observed in thickly layered and textured oils.
"Guillotined, re-assembled and overpainted, I enjoy the construction technique involved in making these large-scale linear paintings and the optical, shimmering, quality of the finished work". Painted in oil on thick parchment, the abstract series combine simple shapes and a limited colour palette to create harmonious, balanced compositions.
