Title or Location: Equestria
The painting was a gift for my SIL who has always owned, ridden and tended horses. Following a nasty accident and the death of her last beloved horse, she decided to retire from her lifelong hobby. I had the frame already and as I took out the backing, decided to paint straight onto the hardboard as it was such a great colour!

Title or Location: Charlie
As a life long fan of the Stones I was saddened when Charlie Watts passed. The Chemistry of the band has always fascinated me with 2 prima Donna's fronting the band Charlie provided the perfect chemistry in that he was so laid back. This painting was my tribute to him. It's in oils 55 x 65 cm.

Title or Location: Thoughtful friend
This is a painting from a photograph of a good friend who was a great support in a very difficult period of my life. Although we now live in different continents she has supported my art journey for the last 15months and I wanted to bless her by painting her. She was thrilled with the painting and was happy to see a resemblance although I somehow managed to make her look around 12! This is my 7th attempt at a portrait, in acrylic on watercolour paper, A4 size. It took me 5 hours to paint & I

Title or Location: Hafryn in February
In 2021 I started to draw and paint a little. In February we went for a walk in a beautiful part of Wales called Hafryn near Llanbrinmair. Despite being winter I was inspired by some photographs taken at the time and tried my hand at an ink drawing. It is quite small, roughly 16 cm x 26 cm.

Title or Location: Sunset at Boukari Harbour, Corfu
I started painting 6 years ago after attending a paint night at a local bar (just for fun) in Vancouver, Canada, where I had been living. I was addicted! Youtube videos have been a great way to learn and grow. The journey has been frustrating at times but it has also become my stress relieving activity.I visited Corfu at the beginning of June and loved the sunsets at this location in the South East of the Island. When I look at skies, clouds , water etc I am always imagining how to paint them

Title or Location: He sees me.
This was a new experience. I knew I needed to be more efficient at creating. So I prayed and with all my art work being are a form of praise and worship, each time I sat to paint, time disappeared. Yet I finished it quicker than any other piece. Once this was done I asked myselfhow'd you do that? I didn't, He did!

Title or Location:
Part of an unreal series from the land of dead birds exploring human extinction. The Unreal series are inspired by the bleak landscapes of Western Australia. In this instance the Blackwood River in Nannup. A poet friend who doesn't want to be named sends me photos she thinks would form a perfect backdrop for the land of dead birds. The birds themselves are Frankenstein compositions all framed by Art Nouveau/Lovecraftian inspired frames. The land of deadbirds is part of a wider exploration of war
