Had some great news from the Addenbrookes show that both the “Agony in the Garden” collages have sold. I’m really happy they are on their way to a new home.
Continuing the tree series this one is themed around St. Francis, birds and animals. It’s acrylic paint pens with ink pens on grey acrylic primed paper, 70x100cm.

The Courtauld Institute houses the fantastic ‘Adam and Eve’ by Lucas Cranach the Elder. I drew from it some years ago, a quick pencil study which has been at the bottom of my sketchbook gathering dust. It was when I drew from Cranach’s National Gallery Venus and Cupid painting that I remembered my previous love of this one. What draws me to Cranach the Elder is the bizarre forms of the figures and the composition of the elongated shapes. I looked at my sketch, a detail from the centre of the painting and wanted to continue with my collage series…

Playing around with the Byzantine theme I thought about where angel fish creatures would live and made them a digital world to swim and fly in.
Festive angel in Christmas colours. I looked at lots of Byzantine images to create this side facing angel. It’s a mix of coloured pencil on paper and digital retouching.

I’m thrilled that my “Christ Washing the Disciples’ Feet” collage and my mini oil painting “Jasmine” were both selected for this year’s Discerning Eye. It’s the second time I’ve been selected and last time the exhibition was really good fun. I’m looking forward to seeing the work in situ. This exhibition is all about small work, which makes it very intimate. There’s something really comforting about getting up close to a wall of work rather than standing on the opposite side of the gallery trying to take it in. All of the works are under 50cm framed! The exhibition runs…
