“Inspiration for my artworks can come from just about anywhere, as long as it involves nature and life. This was inspired by the morning light passing through the leaves of an Acer tree in our back garden. I think sunlight through trees is loved by virtually everyone and I remember loving the warmth and play of light, lying on my back in a grass field, under a tree as a young child. So, you could say this picture has been a long time in the making!
This was done predominantly in Bic biro, but I’ve also added white oil paint over the top of some of the leaves in the background. Initially doing this turns the biro ink blue, but this gradually changes, as the oils dry, until you are left with a yellow/brown aged look. This takes a few weeks to settle into its final colour, so you never quite know what it’s going to look like in the end.”
I make all my own frames for my original artworks, I use mouldings, paints and varnishes of the finest specification. The colours are individually selected to match each piece of art, ensuring the best finish possible.
At present, I can only ship to the UK via the website. I can ship to other destinations, but I’ll need you to get in touch, using the contact me form, for a quote if buying from outside the UK.
All the art I sell is packaged extremely carefully, to keep your painting safe for it’s journey, no matter how far. I have years of experience packaging original artworks for transport to all parts of the world, so you can have faith your unique piece of art will arrive safe and sound. This can take some time, especially with original paintings, however, I aim to ship all art within 2 working days.
