I've recently returned to abstract painting and I'm finding it not only relaxing and enjoyable, but also a wonderful way of loosening up my style of painting and encouraging me to look at the creation of art differently. These pieces are very layered and textured, created over a series of sessions in the studio where they change and evolve in a way that surprises me! I work very intuitively, just allowing myself to enjoy the act of painting and mark making, fully immersed in the process.

This piece is titled Frost Fair and is now for sale in my shop. It's the second of the new series of abstracts - the first has sold and is already in its new home in Canada! - but I plan to paint many more.

You can find out more about this painting on my Instagram account, where I post regular updates from my studio.

New Paintings Now Available In The Shop!

I've added three new paintings on canvas to the shop, all created in April 2018.

A bold botanical piece titled Look Deep Into Nature is painted on a gorgeously textured linen canvas. Murmuration is the largest of the three, measuring 30x30" / 76x76cm and features something I haven't painted before - a Murmuration of Starlings (a huge flock of thousands of birds) over a winter landscape. This piece really has to be seen in person to appreciate the detail, but hopefully the selection of images in the shop will give you a good idea of how striking this painting is in reality.

Intermission 10, with its intricately painted bare trees, is the latest addition to the sold-out Intermission series. Check them out here, and please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Thank you!

Etsy Shop Update - 9:00pm GMT, 22nd March 2018!

Hi everyone! This is just to let you know that I will be updating my Etsy shop with a new collection of work tonight at 9pm GMT. I've recently received many messages asking when I'll have more painted stones for sale, as they've been selling out very quickly.

The entire collection is featured here in this photo; there will be three new watercolour paintings on paper, two painted spoons, and ten separate listings of stones. Some will be available individually, others have been grouped into small collections of 2, 3, or 4.

Thank you as always for your support, and I hope you like the new pieces! To visit the shop, please click here.
