Here are some pictures of my art over the last few years, with the newest first.
I love silver birch trees so much that I cannot stop painting them recently.
My latest piece is oil painted on five pieces of glass that are separated with a spacer and framed in a deep box frame. I entered this into the 2010 RA Summer exhibition but wasn't successful, although this wasn't unexpected due to the huge amount of applications each year and the severe lack of space available! It was a good experience though.
This is an oil on canvas, painted after my travels from a photo of Kaikoura, New Zealand, on a very moody day where the weather stopped us from going out to look for whales.
Birch trees drawn in pastel pencils (not sure of exact name) from my travels in NZ.
A collage I created using leaves, tissue paper and gold foil, last autumn.
Another collage, made with a base of tissue paper, painted over with white acrylic texture paste and then oil pastels used to highlight the ridges created.
This is an oil on canvas, birch trees again!
This is ink on canvas (i think, it might be oil but i'm pretty sure i did it in ink!) that now lives in Soggibottom cottage in Devon (link on the right hand side of the page). This was the kind of abstract work i did at University.
This was an oil on board, a self portrait...i'm not sure i like it anymore though! I was quite pleased with the background surface, built up in thin layers and the texture of the hair.
