Paintings

When people ask me what kind of artist I am, I always say that I am a painter.

Whether this is because it is easier to say so, or because of romance behind the concept of being a painter, I do not know. I do know however that I have a long journey ahead of me, as essentially I am a self taught painter and therefore I am constantly learning and my style is constantly evolving. My apologies for the low quality images, I have never taken my work in to be photographed properly.

This first painting is a self-portrait, inspired (quite obviously) by Van Gough, one of my all time favourite painters.

Some images from the “Cone Heads” series

A portrait of my acupuncturist, my first commission… acrylic on canvas

A portrait of my boyfriend Tim Day, taken from a photo… reality is stranger than fiction. Acrylic on canvas,

I paint animals a lot, acrylic on canvas

These three paintings are a mini series that incorporates my study of western vs. eastern notions of beauty. Acrylic and korean paper on card, 

“waiting for spring” Acrylic and varnish on a skateboard,

Gold fish, acrylic and ink on canvas board

A portrait of my dear friend Simone, acrylic on canvas board

A portrait of of Stu, a dear friend who tragically lost his life last year, acrylic paint and oil pastels on canvas board.

In this paintings I hand stitched all the lines, I find embroidery as inspirational art form too often dismissed as craft, embroidery and spray paint on canvas

A tribute to one of my favourite books…

This is a self portrait of a younger self, acrylic paint on a wooden box

These two etchings are a part of the same series.
