Dates for your diary!
Artsfest in Birmingham City Centre – 10th – 11th September 2011
I’ll be exhibiting my work and demonstrating my techniques at ‘Art on the Railings’ in the city centre on both days. Look for ‘cocoa art’ the name for the trio of artists I work with – Karen Arnold and Rebecca Jayne Dolby. Both are brilliant artists and well worth a look. Mine’s not bad either!! We work in various mediums and styles so theres something for everyone.
Look forward to seeing you there!

Part of a series of work based on a photograph I took last summer in Cornwall which I cropped and produced the first drawing in graphite of a rockpool and shells. From this I continued the series and
each piece is based on the last work in each work, hopefully each piece will gradually change – as ‘Chinese whispers’ in art!
More to follow!

‘Parisian Madame’ Acrylic on paper 25 x 25cm
I love working like this, looking for images in the texture and colours
to work into means I have little control of what I paint.
‘Evening’ Acrylic on paper 30 x 23 cm
I’ve been working again by pressing materials into randdomly applied thick paint.
When dry I work into the texture to create images I ‘see’ there.
This one was inspired by Gaudi

From my ‘Pain’ series
Arthritic pain has affected me for most of my life – like a living being crawling over my bones and tissues, invading my body, throwing out it’s tentacles to envelop me. This particular nasty creature lives over my upper spine and affects my upper back, neck, shoulders, arms and hands.
In ‘Bitter Acid’ I have portrayed how I perceive this creature and the pain and difficulty he causes. The gold and red depict me, my flesh and the pain I am in. I am covered with this acidic creature and caught in its painful net.
This is one of a series of four paintings using colour and abstraction to portray how I perceive my pain and it has proved to be very cathartic to spend time analysing pain and transforming it into paint.
