This was a work in progress for ages. All of a sudden it just seemed finish-able. Maybe an expression of lockdown frustration! Incandescent, 30cm X 30cm oil on canvas.
I love colour on a dark background. This is quite huge! I need a bigger workspace…)
If you can keep your head, when all about you, are losing theirs and blaming you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting you. 20cm X 20cm oil on canvas.
Particularly influenced by abstract art and expressionism, I enjoy experimenting with colour and contemporary portraiture. My paintings are vibrant and unapologetic and many of them contain florals and faces! I particularly like working with oils, acrylics and pastels to create an intense finish.
Born in Lancashire, I now live in Oxfordshire with my family. I paint whenever I have time in between teaching and raising a family (ie. usually at night when everyone is asleep!)
