I love colour and light and enjoy trying my hand in different mediums. Currently, I'm particularly enjoying using acrylics and experimenting with collage. In this gallery I am showing some of my current and earlier works.

Letters from Home

Mixed media, 43*33cm framed

These three pictures were inspired by the centenary of the end of the Great War.
Both my Grandads served in the trenches and came home safely ; my great uncle Alexander Grant did not return.
The first two pictures show men relaxing, reading letters from Home, the third shows them coming home. I found all the stories told by the veterans intensely moving.

After recently attending a workshop with the well known artist Chris Forsey, I am experimenting with acrylic inks,paints and watercolours. Producing a much looser, fluid style, I'm enjoying myself!

Earlier Works

 

danes road 01gal

Danes Road

Oil on canvas, 49*67 framed

I've always been fascinated by the tale of how Danes Road in Awbridge got its name and driving home from Lockerley after a day spent painting I found myself thinking about the Danes who attacked Romsey then carried on and sacked Awbridge. The image was there in my minds eye....exactly as you see. I sketched them that afternoon, started painting them the next day. Over a thousand years later it's still remembered.....the Danes Road.
