The Book: Cosmic Nature – Painting by Wonders

Just the same way you’ll sit down by the fire and read Poems That Make Grown Men Cry or a collection of short stories, here’s a collection of stories about the tiniest harvest mice to giant supernovas: Cosmic Nature – painting by Wonders. When house renovations meant that I was out of the studio for... Continue Reading →

Art Diaries: A Trip To Seville

Sometimes, inspiration is obvious. Other times, you have to go looking for it. In Seville during perhaps the hottest week of the year, I went looking for it. The city of Seville in Spain is one of history and contrast. The streets are filled with glorious buildings that range from gigantic, spiralling Gothic cathedrals to... Continue Reading →

Journeys With The Moon

"Apus Moon", Watercolours 50 years ago today, and the first humans took their first steps on the moon. Since then, our view of this distant, dirty white rock has been changed forever. The moon is very unlike our blue, vibrant planet: it's grey, barren, almost featureless except for its craters, and it's stuck in an... Continue Reading →

A Splash of Colour

June in Malta, and with temperatures suddenly hitting 34 degrees overnight, it can be quite exhausting and hard to appreciate the colours around you. If you like the shimmering turquoise of the Mediterranean Sea, then you can do no better! I love seeing the balls of sunlight dance and break up the waves into thousands... Continue Reading →

Cosmic Thoughts – Strange Worlds

Looking out over the vast expand of flat flood-plain, you’d be forgiven for thinking that someone had turned the colours off. Grey, stretching in all directions like spilled ashes. The ground is a vast expanse of charcoal, permeated by a fine dusting of frost that just occasionally catches in the light as it tries to... Continue Reading →

Our Planet

It’s not easy to feel like you can make a difference in this world. It’s even harder when it feels like it’s everyone but you doing the damage. I’m not saying that I’m a vegan eco-warrior who’s removed all single-use plastic from her life. Far from it. What I mean is that when you’re one... Continue Reading →

A Different Kind Of Painting

The process of this watercolour painting was quite different to my usual habits. I’d consider myself not the most imaginative of thinkers: I can’t conjure up brand new innovations or fully formed expressions in my head. I imagine in little snippets, carried away by a melancholy piece of music or an emotion, or just a... Continue Reading →

Painting Pluto

Pluto’s had a rough ride. It’s been flung out into the edges of the Solar System to orbit erratically among millions of other rocks, asteroids, dwarf planets and more. The influence of the sun barely, just barely reaches this far. In 2006, it was unceremoniously kicked out of the planet club once and for all,... Continue Reading →

A Bookdate!

It’s already May, and I’ve already spent the better part of this year turning a series of paintings into a book, a virtual gallery. What started off as just a fleeting idea snowballed, and I’m now wading through 40+ paintings, stacks of notes, proofreading, editing, and trying to put years of thoughts down on paper....
