New work

I thought I would share some of my new work.
I have two events in the calendar for September & they still appear to be going ahead.
My efforts are therefore focused on developing some of my themes in preparation.

Unusual times

It is unusal times with a virus that is keeping us in lock down. Many events have been cancelled or postponed including my own.
On the positive I am able to work in my studio and hopefully when life resumes I will have so new work to show.

I do want to share a piece of music composed by http://www.duotonemusic.com A piece inspired by my painting now called ‘Slow Wave,’ after Duotone’s composition.

Looking back & forwards into 2020

Looking back & forward.

As I look back on 2019 I believe my work has progressed, in the way I use paint and other mediums. I have made a concerted effort to work on a larger scale and feel I have been successful. I will still continue to work small too, I get a lot of pleasure from working at different scales. I’ve also been developing my etching skills and I am particularly enjoying dry point. I am intending to try collagraph printing and sugar lift when I next making a copper plate etching. My motivation in all scenarios is mark making and the different qualities I can achieve..

As well as progress in my work I  have also been involved in more art exhibitions and events and hope to continue building on these in 2020. My next project is an exhibition at Rugby Museum & Art Gallery, where I will be showing alongside Gordon Connell

Some of the work I’ve sold this year


A work in progress

A work in progress!
My aim has been to to capture the feel of moving water.

 

From time to time.

Inevitably at this time of the year we are looking back at the previous year at the same as thinking ahead to the next. I am inspired by time’s linear journey anyway so it seems appropriate to to show something painted at the start of 2018 alongside the newest.
