Ready to Hang
A painting full of hope inspired by recent events in my life: on the 1 January 2017 I am wishing for a better year. Green is the colour of hope. This large oil painting was built over many thick layers of paint. Lovely fresh green and lemony yellow combined with white and grey. The painting would make a talking point in any interior design be it the home or office environment.
The box canvas is painted around the edges and is ready for hanging.
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.
