Abruzzo Beach

Now that the weather is making us think of holidays and beaches, I thought I would put this painting on my website. Inspired by a very busy scene last year on the public beach near Montisilvano, Italy, I was fascinated by how much interaction – mostly non-verbal, was happening around me.  Acrylic 53.5 x 53.5 cm

Always room for one more pair

A new painting for 2017. I think there’s a bit of Imelda in all of us. The perfect pair of shoes are sitting in the window and we just have to go and try them on. My painting is all about wanting rather than needing and those red shoes spoke to me. Oil on canvas […]

Gardeners at Hampton Court

I was given amazing access to parts of the Hampton Court Palace gardens that few people get to see. It was February and very cold so few tourists were about. As I sat there drawing with my feet in a plastic bag to stop the cold seeping in, a Japanese tourist came by and took […]

A moving experience

My Stanley Spencer homage. When I moved from Buckinghamshire to West Sussex it felt happy and sad. Happy because I was leaving a big house and garden and lots of work but sad because we had been there a long time with lots of lovely memories. The two figures flying away at the top of […]

Flying High

This outing on a hot air balloon was supposed to be a treat. Whilst he is having an interesting time looking at everything, she is terrified. Watercolour 41 x 31cm SOLD

The cake stall

In my local park there was a festival and people set up tents to sell home made goods. On one stand were some delicious cakes but the two women were so engrossed in their conversation, the cakes were having to sell themselves. Oil on board  80 x 59cm SOLD
