Original prints and paintings
Although abstract, my pieces are rarely ‘made-up’. My style is to take an aerial view (of a vista that inspires me) and transform it into a unique, vibrant collage of mixed media and morphed shapes.
As a young girl in East Africa, I drew inspiration from the shapes, colours, & textures of natural vistas and the way the weather affects their appearance (how the wind shifts the shapes & colours, how the sun brightens or dulls, etc).
The raw power of the ocean waves hitting the harbour walls & surrounding land is a sight to behold. Many of my recent paintings are abstract depictions of water interacting with man-made structures, boats, & land.
As an avid swimmer, I spend a lot of my time in all bodies of water – Swimming pools, lakes, oceans, and even the occasional river. The sea pools and beaches of Ithaka and Menorca continue to fuel my passion and spark new concepts for my paintings!
Cornwall is a firm favourite and tourist hot spot in Britain. The combination of harbour lights, expanses of sea and sand mixed with the unpredictable weather, thundering waves, and stunning historical towns make for a vibrant scenery painting full of different tones, colours, & shapes.
My family life (parents living in Menorca) and sunny excursions with other artists have granted me the incredible opportunity to paint their luscious landscapes & seascapes. Spain, the Greek Islands, & Tuscany – I’ve visited, swam, & painted them all of my years!
Realism & life drawing never came naturally to me – Which is why most of my pieces are abstract. But after discovering the beauty of the female figure combined with the intense colours of Unison pastels, my passion for life drawing was lit!
Over my 30 years of painting, I’ve developed some pieces that don’t fall into my standard style. And it’s those paintings that find themselves in this section, such as Aylesbury depictions and paintings from my earlier days as an artist.
