Ready to Hang
An extra large, abstract oil painting that has been carefully built over many layers of colour. The painting is striking in terms of its size and vibrancy of the colours. It's a statement piece that will lighten up any room. I was particularly influenced by the beautiful work of Frank Bowling, a Guyana born British artist. I only discovered Bowling a year ago and was immediately taken in by the radiance of his work and the colour combinations.
The canvas has been painted around the edges in a complementary colour. Hooks and artist string have been applied at the back so the painting is ready
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.
