  • “Ennui”

    I created this work as a way voicing my frustrations with the way that Parkinson’s disease is rapidly stealing my ability to speak. It began with just one word, loner; I decided that it was not the right choice and so started thinking of others that would best describe the feelings of isolation that can […]

  • A Work in Progress?

    An Abstract work, acrylic on 300gsm paper, 50cm. x  70cm. It may be a work in progress, maybe not, I have not yet decided. This work was completed the day after I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, the 13th. March. Such an unlucky number, not that I am superstitious! As with my recent works, I painted intuitively; […]

  • “Nest Eggs”

    One small abstract work,“Nest Eggs”, oil on canvas, 42cm. x  52cm. The symbolic image of the nest and the egg has appeared many times in my work, often unplanned.  Possibly suggesting the safety of home, of love and protection from unknown dangers.

  • “Primitive Landscape.2”

    Primitive Landscape 2. Mixed media on paper, 50cm. x  70cm. The trees about the cottage did not actually appear as I portrayed them in this image. There was so much more information for me to record.  Memories of the primitive sound of wind blowing eerily through otherwise impenatable undergrowth.  Ancient branches groaning in objection as one rubbed against another […]

  • “Primitive Landscape”

    Abstract landscape,  Acrylic on paper, 50cm. x  70cm. Remembering walking alone through dark eerie woodland.  Memories of the spookie sensation that left goosebumps on my skin.  A spirit filled grove that must be passed to reach home.  

  • “Flotsam”

    Acrylic on canvas, 64cm. x  78cm. Not all voyages reach their chosen destination.  

  • “Unfolding Tragedy”

    Oil on canvas, 64cm. x  78cm. I created this abstract work as my response to the dilema of refugees all over the world who leave their homeland in search of safe haven in other countries. The paper boat is my way of representing the type of unseaworthy vessel that many assylum seekers often find themselves crammed […]

  • “Crusading”

    Acrylic and ink on 300 gsm. paper, 50cm. x  70cm. The application of layers of coloured scumbling, crazed by random marks, scribbled with twigs dipped in black India ink, is followed by intuitive editing.  Selecting shapes that appear from the paintings surface; highlighting and isolating. It is a process akin to -pareidolia – where ones imagination […]

  • “Layers of Memory”

      Acrylic, ink and charcoal on 300 gsm. paper, 50cm. x  70cm. I have come to regard memory – like my process of abstract painting – as never fixed, always in flux and infused by the multitude of present moments of recollection. Memories – or the affective experiences that stimulate the memories – remain as […]

  • “Stolen Moment”

    Acrylic on 300 gsm. paper, 50cm. x 70cm. A moment in time, gone now; all that is left is it’s affective impression. Early morning sunlight streaming through a window to mark the beginning of another glorious day in an otherwise, drab Welsh council house.  The sun’s brilliant light refracting through panes and its kaleidoscopic brilliance reflecting off […]
