They always came back

Christmas often makes me think about older people who may be on their own and this painting was about the pleasure the pigeons bring to this lady in her London flat. To some they’re a pest but to her they are family.

Crimson Lily

I was influenced by the artists of the 20’s in this linocut. Simple lines and clear shapes Linocut 23 x 17.5cm

Dreaming of the sea

One of my few lino prints. I wanted a simple image that conveyed the relationship between the girl, the shells and the pattern of the water. Linoprint 18.5 x 23.5cm

I can’t sleep

Faces in the sun – hands in the dirt

This painting was inspired by that lovely feeling when you go into the garden at the first showing of sunshine after the winter. As you work in the garden it uncurls the tension to feel the sun warm on your face even as your hands touch the cool earth. Acrylic on board. 30 x 30cm

Lark Song

Interesting creatures

Her oneness with her dogs and their interlocking shapes as they rest together was inspired by the sense one has of the understanding of mood that many animals have, particularly dogs. Acrylic on wood  30 x 30cm

It felt good up there
