11.05.2017: Update

A lot seems to have happened since I last creeped on here. Its so difficult to find the time to just sit down and write about what’s been going on. Where to begin? The degree show will begin it’s hanging process for postgraduates next week. I’m really lucky I have grey painted walls that shouldn’t…

10.03.2017: Morning Tidy

Friday mornings are great for me to do little odd bits before work;   Painting round the edges of nearly finished paintings is a great way to sort of unwind. It’s like tidying up your own mess, not really something you want to do, but it always feels great once it’s done. I would say…

15.02.2017: Work and Rework

Hello angels. I keep having urges to write things down I am doing, but it never transcribes to my website! So, here I am, typing it in now! I think I shall give the old page a little spring awakening too over the next couple weeks. It needs an update. It would be really great…

03.01.2017: Endings and Beginnings

Happy New Year! Pre-Christmas I was a little busy with commissions  (which I had more of than I anticipated); I am really excited to be able to share them with you now: Although portraits are not my thing, I was very pleased to be asked to do this. I thoroughly enjoyed painting Little Jac, and hope to…

Wednesday, 16th: New Things

Here are a couple new things I have done in accordance to earlier stages in my paintings;             Sadly, I don’t think the last one worked as well as what I would have liked. Also, I am having difficultly in painting back how I used to now, but I don’t…

Thursday, 6th: Thoughtless

        When I think of flowers, I think of pink roses, white orchids,  yellow daisies. I am starting to believe I use flowers as a metaphor for thought, infusing semantic meanings and dispositions with each petal. These petals are ‘drowned’ amongst empty spaces, voids I create.   “The happiest of people avoid…

Sunday, 10th: Studies

I have actually been doing work in the week … I promise. Just have not had much chance to go on here, although I might update less frequently, but with more substance as WordPress annoys me with its inability to keep my images in the format I want them. Continuing with studies,  I have produced…

Friday, 1st: Ripple

Happy July!!! I wish it felt more like summer but it hasn’t rained (yet) today, so at least that is something… OK, I haven’t actually gone out to take photographs of the water as I probably should do, but I am not going to let that stop me. The oval painting I began earlier in…

Tuesday, 28th: The Surface

After taking an unintended couple of weeks off from any serious painting, it’s time to get the brushes out. In my head, I have been back and forth a lot with what I would like to really achieve. One part of me wants to continue with flowers, white petals and the limited palette; another side…
