Canal reflections … food festival to Christmas markets 2023

Just a little update from me… earlier in the year I was busy creating some new art, opened the studio for the Open Art Trail, took part in the Abergavenny Food Festival with Made in Monmouthshire, worked on some commissions, showed art at The Oriel Cric gallery and The Towpath Inn and now having a break before Christmas.  Love Christmas so will create some new pieces for the markets and then onto next year 🙂 xx

Distant Hills

Hills & Valleys and what I’ve been up to the last few years

Earlier in the year I started working on a new series; Hills & Valleys, inspired by the surrounding landscape of the Black Mountains & Brecon Beacons National Park. I’ve painted a number of artworks on wooden and aluminium substrates, some long landscape and some round all using numerous layes of pouring medium and inks where I use the inks in the pour and also paint between each layer. I then finish with a layer of art resin. Due to its many layers, it has a rich translucency and the resin adds to this but also makes the art more resiliant; water, heat and scratch resistant, introducing the idea that you can not only have your art hanging on the wall framed but use possibly as splashbacks in your kitchen, hang in the bathroom or use as an occasional table.
