Paintings of birds and animals set in jewel colours with gold leaf tell the story of a paradise garden. Rich in detail and patterning, these pieces illuminate a room. We mostly live in cities where we might long for an enclosed garden in which to find an hour of sunlit peace. Birds inhabit the garden and it is filled with trees and flowers: the garden as paradise. This is my theme. My work has a timeless quality that is rooted in ancient art yet is very contemporary.
My paintings have been selected for exhibition at the Royal Watercolour Society Contemporary Watercolour Competition for the last three years; 2019, 2018 and 2017. In 2017 I was the winner of the Dry Red Press award at this exhibition. My work is currently represented in several UK galleries and I hold regular Open Studio events.
Prices range from £250 up to £2400. Please email me if you are interested in a particular piece or a commission.
