This is an exhibition of new works focusing on locality and observations of the natural environment during the last year.
It is a response to light, time, stillness and reflection in a time of crisis.
There will be originals for sale, both framed and unframed, as well as prints and cards
Work is in graphite and ink.
Alongside new work you can take time looking at a growing series of animal etchings and my latest portraits
There will also be sculptures and stonework for inside and out by the very brilliant David Williams
The studio is light and airy and the garden is there for you to enjoy
The exhibition will be following Covid safe rules to the letter, so we can assure you of a relaxing visit.
We hope to see you in May
I specialise in illustration and portraiture. I exhibit regularly as a member of The Oxford Art Society, take part in Oxfordshire Artweeks annually and have been selected to exhibit with The Royal Society of Portrait Painters, The Society of Graphic Fine Art and The Royal Society of British Artists.
I exhibit frequently in local galleries and my work is in several private collections.
I am particularly drawn to the stories hidden in our local environment of tree, copse, land and sky. I enjoy watching the slow interaction between trees and the way they settle in the landscape. Using ink techniques, I explore the atmosphere of this environment in all its woody detail, linking tree to sky, creating a sense of slow history. I also aim to capture the movement and character of birds and animals (often threatened species) which live in our wooded environments and skies, using both graphite and etching techniques.
I enjoy exploring the human narrative through portraiture; noting the many subtle details that characterise humanity in any given moment. Showing part of a face or an interaction creates a range of narratives and ways of seeing. I notice how the subtle ways in which we look, speak and gesture can give a range of fleeting impressions to the observer - the angle of a head, the position of a hand. Through these I tell a story to which the onlooker adds their own.
I am happy to accept commissions.
