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 →

Taking time out to get creative is important, and it doesn’t necessarily mean painting either. Perhaps it’s planning... Continue Reading →

The Art of Space and Flowers

For once, there are several still-wrapped canvases, and even an unfinished painting in my studio, but I got a little distracted by an idea for a new work. Japanese influence has been floating in and out of things right now: thanks in no small part to my husband's obsession with all things Japanese literature. We... Continue Reading →
