I dreamt I was dancing

A new painting based on one I did some time ago called “The Dream”. In dreams I find I cannot go through a doorway, I’m not sure if there’s any colour and all sorts of people I know are mixed up together. I have tried to convey this uncertain quality in my painting. Acrylic 64 […]

Work, Love, Exercise

This painting has been accepted for the Society of Women Artists 161st Annual Exhibition at the Mall Gallery in London starting on 7th Sept. This new painting is the first of my series about plate spinning. Women have so many calls on their time and try to do a job, have time for their family […]

Dance the day away

This new painting was lovely for me to paint. I was able to use some of the sketches I did a while ago at the Royal Ballet’s rehearsal in London and put them into a composition. The thought behind this composition was in response to so many posts on social media about how lock-down has […]

In the Park

There is so much activity in local parks at the moment I wanted to capture in one painting what these open spaces have meant to people in the last year. Although each knot of people is in their own bubble, there is a unity about the overall use of the space. SOLD

Flowers of Egypt

This painting is about the rich cultural influences from Egypt – belly dancing, dancing inspired by paintings in tombs and on temples and the image of the lotus flower that decorates fabrics and pots. OIl on linen 45cm x 45cm

Inside all of us is an extrovert trying to get out and have fun

Finding the Wild Child 2

This painting is the third in my series of altered states. Called “Finding the Wild Child 2” it is about conquering inner introversion and faking being an extrovert. According to the people who know about these things, it can be good for generating positive emotions and satisfaction. I might try it! Acrylic on canvas  50 […]

Amore

My painting theme for 2020 is about altered states. Inspired by thoughts of how we change according to circumstances and what life throws at us, I thought I would start with the simple idea of how love changes not only how we feel about ourselves but also how we view the world. That lovely fizzy […]

You make me want to dance

Another new painting. This one is about music and dance again and is a composition relishing the effect music has on our moods. Acrylic. 58 x 58cm.

Art Fair at Goodwood Racecourse coming up

Very close now to the Sussex Art Fair at Goodwood Racecourse 17th – 19th May where I will be on stand 49. There will be seven new paintings plus eight from 2018. My latest picture is called “You make me want to dance” and is a celebration of music and the way it makes us […]

KISS

When I started to work out the composition for some new paintings this year, I was reminded of that very useful piece of advice when it comes to communication – KISS. (keep it simple, stupid). Having spent an enjoyable day at the London Art Fair, I was struck by how effective some of the simpler […]
