Ready to Hang
An abstract landscape painting where I experimented using black and white with dashes of purple and magenta. Painting was applied in different layers and thinned down with Liquin. The paint was then manipulated across the canvas with a palette knife; paint was applied, taken off and re-applied until the right pattern emerged.
The deep box canvas is painted around the edges in a complementary colour. Hooks and wire are attached at the back; the canvas is ready for hanging. All my work comes with a signed certificate of authenticity.
Discovering that I love painting in my 30s was quite a surprise to me - I always thought of myself as a writer not a painter. Now I can't stop painting; I always have several ideas in my head for the next piece and am impatient to get on with it. I am curious by nature, always ready to further explore new ideas and impressions. I originally studied literature in London (BA Honours) and then in Oxford (MSt European Literature). Later I also completed a Masters in Counselling. Both fiction and psychotherapy influence my artistic work through the stories and unconscious processes revealing themselves layer by layer. My work has been sold to art collectors internationally with many returning customers. My work is regularly exhibited at local galleries and art fairs in London.
