This collection brings together different marks, shapes and patterns that have always intrigued me and I have looked at how (if?) I can make these work together -–plaid, florals and grids. Intrigued?
A painting in a coconut shell? Why not! A colourful little ornament or handy as a trinket bowel - you decide!
I have followed on the path through which Celtic art developed - different ideas and styles were shared between different regions, and people took new motifs, forms and designs and elaborated on them to create something unique
Small and affordable, each of these little vibrant mixed-media abstract pieces provides an uplifting pop of colour as a standalone piece, but they also look stunning as part of a set
This collection celebrates the beauty of our minds and our intuition and encourages us to look inward to explore hidden power and untapped potential
This collection is fundamentally about children and their interaction with the world - they show an authentic and natural sense of wonder and magic and are captured with the sense of making a memory
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“We bought this [original painting 'Learning'] to go on the landing of our newly decorated stairway and I can’t help stopping to look at it every time I pass by. It has a realy quality to it and the deep colours complement the existing decor. To know the history of how the subject was chosen also adds to the enjoyment . I love it"
“Beautiful paintings. Love the intensity of colours as well the composition of each painting. It is very captivating or would say hypnotizing, as you could look at these paintings for a long time.”
