NEW PAINTINGS AND INSPIRATIONS
Radiance is a canvas that is 80 cm x 80 cm, inspired by the beautiful formal pond at the National Trust property - Cotehele. Having visited the gardens for a photo shoot on a particularly glorious day the sun radiated across the waters, illuminating all the colours. I will be delighted to see this piece hanging for the first time in public at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, Pall Mall, in March 2020.
MATTERS OF THE HEART
'Matters of the heart' is the first painting completed for an upcoming exhibition in spring 2020, in recognition of winning the Royal Arts Prize Visitor Choice Award 2019 along with artist Jo Holdsworth.
While on a photo shoot at the stunning Pentillie Castle and Estate, the still waters of the pond created an amazing reflection, the reds of the azaleas bringing flashes inspiration.
My inspiration is driven by walking through the landscape. As each painting takes many weeks, I take hundreds of photographs and sketches during a site visit, placing myself as if I were painting in situe and capturing the light naturally using no filters. I want to be able to come back to the studio still breathing and seeing all the nuances that have captivated me.
