  • Check in III

    £490.00

    Mixed media monotype on canvas.  This piece along with Zeit Geist II is part of a series on heads / portrait images I made on the theme ‘watching you, watching me’. This is a glimpse into a brief encounter, a passing moment viewing and communicating through screens. I built these up in layers of ink paint and printed pattern.

  • I know you know

    £330.00

    Hand painted woodcut monoprint .A glimpse into a brief encounter, a passing moment. There are times when I find myself able to people watch, unnoticed, through reflections in a window or a glazed surface, for example on trains or in restaurant windows. Sometimes though, you can find yourself trapped in a returned gaze – they’ve caught you staring. This piece is part of the V&A permanent collection A black wood frame complements this piece.

  • In The Flow

    £1,900.00

    Oil and mixed media on canvas. ‘In The Flow’ is a playful observation of a ‘camera ready’ moment of interaction and social display.

     

    I like to build up the paint in layers then score, scape or and comb through the surface – it gives the image a transient quality

  • In the Zone

    £150.00

    Oil on canvas (framed) . This is one of many small paintings of contemplative heads I created during Lockdown.  I was unable to travel to my studio so I decided to build on my miniature paintings from my ‘lockdown studio’ aka – the kitchen table.Working on a miniature scale has been a great way to experiment with new approaches and materials. I have painted many of these and they have become part of my ‘Moments of being’ series – they’re visual expressions of moments; emotions and musings on daily life. A black wood frame complements this piece.

  • Instant Replay II

    £350.00

    Drypoint, linocut and collage – edition 4/20 unframed.Recently I have been focussing on the personalities of the individual caught up in the confusion and speed of the modern world. Glitched images that appear on screens gave me some new ideas to play with. I have been experimenting with combinations of printed layers and rearranging them. My aim is to depict a fragmented moment – a ‘Story’ within a tight frame and space.

  • Mind The Gap

    £425.00

    Original hand painted carborundum collagraph monoprint ( Artist proof ) (framed).

    I was challenged by a gallery to come up with a print that was specifically about London. It’s a playful take on the ‘Mind the Gap’ slogan which appears with its warning band of yellow on London underground station platforms. We are repeatedly reminded to be wary of the gap between the train and the platform. This cautionary phrase alludes to many situations that are synonymous with London living.

  • Mirroring II

    £590.00

    Oil and mixed media on canvas.  This is a playful study about women in group formations. They often mirror each other by adopting the one-hand-on-the-hip ‘teapot’ pose and compete for the photographer’s attention.

  • Museum VI

    £3,400.00

    Oil, graphite and mixed media on canvas. This painting in my ‘Museum’ series was inspired by encounters in museums whilst studying and making sketches of old carved stone heads suspended in glass cabinets. The textures; incised lines, the tooled marks and the intriguing traces of patterns and pigment just visible on their surfaces I find very seductive.

     

    My intention was to capture the experience of these visits; the ebb and flow of people; sounds of whispers and snippets of conversation drifting over; brief encounters with shadows and reflections appearing over the glazed exhibits. My process involved layers upon layers of paint and other materials then sanding back, scraping away to imbue the surface with a rich texture. I utilise this approach in all of the media I work with; it’s the overlap of accident and intention that I like so much, because it impregnates the surface, giving it a sense of something that has been carved out, weathered or cracked by time.

     

    Ideas develop from conversations, observing body language and how people interact and influence each other. I like to suggest narratives or a drama just beginning to unfold.

  • Reflecting

    £3,400.00

    Oil and mixed media on canvas . Reflecting is an underlying theme in all my work.

    ‘There will be time, there will be time  To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;’ T.S Eliot

     

    The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock 

    Preparing a face to suit and deal with the many social situations and predicaments we encounter

     

    I work in layers – I’m very much a builder and an excavator. Intent overlaps accident imbuing the surface with a sense of history and mystery. I work by building up layers then strip, sand or scrape them away. I like it when earlier traces of paint underneath are exposed.

  • Squeezebox

    £3,250.00

    Carborundum, collagraph ,collage ,monotype (framed) Mixed media monoprint and collage. This is comprised of printed strips of masking tape taken from several hand inked carborundum plates then arranged and assembled to form a collage. My current work comprising of paintings and printmaking focusses on the personalities of the individual caught up in the confusion and speed of the modern world. My aim here was to create some chaos by deconstructing the faces and then re-assembling them.

    It was  scrolling through ‘Stories’ in social media that inspired this work ‘Squeezebox’. In these ‘stories’ images flash before us like a never ending ’Show and tell.’ These images are incomplete, mere fractions of a ‘story’ which hustle to catch our attention and approval within in a tight time frame and space. A black wood frame complements this piece.

    £3,400.00

    Oil and mixed media on canvas.

    A ‘snapshot’ of social display and interaction on a stage full of coloured screens. The plethora of photos I encounter on social media and in fashion magazines inspired this painting. I wanted to play with the body gestures, the poses often adopted when being photographed.
