As an artist one of my main challenges is that there are just not enough hours in the day to put all of my ideas onto paper, experiment with new styles and try out different mediums, techniques and approaches...
Here is a glimpse into where I am at so far with that... no doubt this is a page that will grow!
Woodland Watercolours (late 2021/early 2022) is a series of loose watercolours depicting the very best of beautiful British wildlife. Also available as greetings cards and with selected designs on Art Merchandise, these are beautiful pieces to delight wildlife lovers, art lovers and gardeners alike.
My latest creative adventure is into abstract expressionism using acrylics and mixed media. Working in multiples, I will create several large pieces in parallel, which is an exciting a complete contrast to the meticulous detail of a pet portrait (although no less involved)!
The journey each of these pieces has gone through is richly told through through it's textural layers, interesting contrasts and subtle details. With these pieces it really is the case of the more you look the more you see.
All of my pet portraits are created in coloured pencil and have a gallery of their own here.
I have also worked in coloured pencil on other pieces both for greetings cards designs and for gallery exhibitions. My bee series has been one of my most successful to date with all of the originals sold and limited edition prints now available.
Other works in acrylics, graphite and ink are shown here. I definitely plan more seascapes, more ink work, more of everything really! So please do come back and watch this page grow!
