My gold leaf and reverse glass paintings focus on portraying reflection and mystery. I hope to draw you in to a multi-layered and patterned space of discovery about yourself as much as the natural world that we are all part of.
Taking time to peer through a natural landscape- high up or low down- we can start to feel more connected with what we might find there: a hint of a new habitat or a sense of being. We might see a bit of ourselves in a new light, as in my art work, carved out in the niches and crannies of the ancient Jurassic rocks, the Rivers Otter or Exe inlets and the reflective pathways out to sea where the lighthouse, buoys, fishing vessels or international shipping lanes sometimes blink at us at night. I live and work by the East Devon seaside, in touch with the warm ancient red cliffs, the smoothed pebblebed commons and lush farmlands which Devon is well known for. The owls, gulls, crows, wrens, robins, swallows abound and always somewhere near are the fox, vole, and the hum of visiting bees on the hellebore, myrtle, rose or a forgotten tuft of moss. These are my everyday art enchantments. I celebrate them in colourfully lit scenes through my art.
