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.

Skills developement

One of the positives to lockdown is that I have more free time. I’m allowing myself the space to make mistakes and try out new ways of working. I’m also doing more printmaking. I have been practising collagraph, mezzotint & dry point etching. Unfortunately, it’s more difficult to acid etch from home so I’m limited to printing off existing plates.

My inspiration

My inspiration for these paintings is the saying ‘Time and tide wait for no man.’ I often use the sea as a metaphor for time; here I reflect on those rare moments of peace.

Chance plays a big part in the way I work. It frees me up, allowing me the space to hint at places that exist within us rather than in reality.
