The Website is Live

Many times over the years, people have asked me if there is one place where they can view all of my paintings. Well. after several weeks work, I no longer have to give the slightly shifty look that came with the reply, “Not yet.” Here it is.

All of my available work is listed in the shop where it can be purchased securely through PayPal. The price of each work includes professional framing, which will be done before the painting is shipped. There is just a £35 charge to cover postage and packing to make sure the painting arrives safely with you. This charge is per order, so if you choose more than one painting, the delivery charge for each subsequent work is waived.

And to celebrate the launch of the website, I’m running a sale with all works available at discount prices (there’s as much as 50% off some paintings). This is for a limited time.

A huge ‘thank-you’ to everyone who already owns one of my paintings, and to all of you who have commented kindly on them.

Angels for Totnes, 2019

These two paintings were produced for an exhibition in Totnes, Devon UK in 2019. Painted at the end of 2018, they are both deeply personal. The exhibition brief was to create one very internal work and one more extrovert, both expressions of the self, or perhaps the soul.

Angels in the Garden

An introspective meditative exploration of the safe space created by nature and the spiritual experience that is to be had in beautiful places. Internal sadness is held by the spirit figures and the solidness of the dogs, and letters written to the inner child, the past child, pave the path under the roses

Angels in the Window   Looking upwards (or outwards?) the vivid blue transmits a light like that which shines through a stained glass window. The child stands as an outline next to the woman, the violin the expression that links childhood to adulthood, the dogs representing love and safety.

The little girl in these paintings drawn in red represents a drawing my grandmother did of me, bold, in red biro on a piece of newspaper (the obituary column. I was 5 and I was playing the violin.

Blue Angel

I recently experienced an odd phenomenon in that just as soon as I finished a painting I got sick. It’s made me ponder the vulnerability of the process and I suppose this might be a lesson not to paint things one doesn’t understand, which is challenging as the work I’m most proud of is that which I’m not sure I actually created. Sometimes it comes from a subconscious place whereby if I try too hard things become murky or clumsy.

The most important aspect is always light, that liminal quality. I aim to catch feelings rather than the more obvious.

I believe that what we see is not the same. What I see is imbued with my experience of it, my feelings toward it. Objects become transmutable. I think this is why I started painting angels.
