I create textured works on canvas that are part painting / part sculpture. I use a variety of materials and mixed media to create the deep textures. I often enhance the textures with gold leaf. I have a large selection of red/orange works which were on show at a restaurant in central London for a year. They are now available again to buy or to hire. Some customers prefer to spread their payments and so monthly payment terms can be arranged.
Many of these canvas works are inspired by human cells, particularly those of the immune system, although viewers often see them as planets or moons. These are the white blood cells, (which I paint in many colours including white.) These cells keep us healthy by searching out and destroying bacteria. The gold oval shapes represent the mitochondria – the “power-houses” of the cell, which create energy. I’d never even heard of mitochondria until my “Happy Cells” exhibition in St George’s Hospital Tooting, where a doctor told me what they were. I was duly impressed that I’d subconsciously been including something so important, and covering them in real gold!
I am planning to open an online shop in due course. In the meantime please email me if you need further information on my works on canvas or would like to arrange a studio visit.
