February 2015

I work in an illustrative way using a variety of media including pens and acrylic inks, gold and silver leaf sometimes with threads and glitter on fine quality paper. My year's work for 2014 can be seen on the Works on Paper page of this website.

The latest bird paintings relate to the Woodpeckers that sat in the cherry tree outside our bedroom window earlier in the year. The pleasure of sitting up in bed with a cuppa watching a woodpecker preening in the early morning sun deserved a painting. The birds in the alder carr refers to the weekly kayaking adventures I make along the River Bure and adjoining rivers in the Norfolk Broads.

 

Occasionally I have interesting design commissions which stretch my creative work and allow me to work in 3D or with unusual materials and interesting people. These are all on the Design page of this website.
