SMALL ORIGINAL PAINTINGS

series of smaller works on paper ~ 5 x 7" in a 10 x 8" mount ~ they act as preliminary pieces, and are much more expressive in their execution than my canvas work. Smaller framed canvas works ~ showcasing the relationship between nature and the viewer, and how we each interpret and connect with these spaces

These works are inspired by a trip to Antarctica a few years ago ~ definitely top of the bucket list; the juxtaposition of the sense of calm yet foreboding was completely surreal, as was being totally isolated from the World, yet completely part of it. Three words ~ vast, textural, colourful. Through a mix of textural brushstrokes and colour ~ my aim is to create this sense of vast, calm and freedom within the viewer
