Contemporary. Rolled

1,800 (50 limited edition prints are available cost- 40 each )

Size of painting: (H) 142cm (W) 110cm (D) 3cm

Boxed Canvas- can be hung framed or unframed

Medium: Acrylic- textured background

Influence:

I had a fun thought of ladies laughing/in shock whilst getting ready for a night out and wearing evening dresses and rollers accompanied by a poodle wearing rollers!

I asked some friends to wear rollers and act out my thoughts and from the photographs of this scene, I created "All Rolled Up" in my contemporary style.

I used acrylic for this scene as it works well with texture and indeed the free flowing painterly aspects of the abstract work included in the ladies dresses.

Lady Ghost

My father, RIP, regularly told stories about ghosts and sightings thereof close to Rineen, Co. Kerry, Ireland which is an area prone to fog and mist. This area is a favourite walking route by many and considered to be a mystical part of Ireland. These thoughts and the song "Diamonds are Forever" influenced me to paint Lady Ghost who has come back to life and of course she is wearing her diamonds …….

1,400 (50 limited edition prints are available cost- 40 each )

Size of painting: (H) 137cm (W) 107cm (D) 2cm

Boxed Canvas- can be hung framed or unframed but would look better in a frame

Medium: Acrylic-

Influence: I was drawn to paint fantasy uplifting flowers and behind and around the flowers I have added hundreds of different faces. In my mind I was associating the need for people mood uplift during lock down and looking at flowers and being surrounded by them is said to give a feeling of new life, new beginning and rejuvenation.
