For most of this year, from February, my work has taken a significant new direction. With the lockdown and exhibition opportunities and workshops cancelled, I have devoted my time to developing my approach to my work.
The body of work I have completed over the last few months is on paper and I have been working in multiples of 4. I have experimented with intuitive and responsive strategies to mark making both in paint and other media.
I have updated my paper gallery where most of my recent work is currently. Do take a look, I would love to receive your comments.

Last Thursday I presented a workshop for Pedas. The artists made work inspired by the work of Picasso & Braque using collage and mixed media.

The collage pieces were made from papers, hand painted by myself.
