Winter light

I recently made a series of paintings influenced by the impressions left by winter light during walks. I chose to develop these paintings on raw canvas that I’d stretched, making the mark-making all the more vital as mistakes can’t be painted over.

Each painting is 50cm wide and 40cm high. My intention is that they can be hung together or individually. I’m delighted that one of these will be shown at Hot Numbers from 12 December 2017 until February 4 2018.

Good to be back

Maternity leave is hard work. I’m delighted to be back in the studio after a break that’s brought more happy chaos to life and looking forward to what the next year brings.

Work in progress

It’s always difficult to know when an artwork is ‘finished’. I need to keep some paintings around me for a long time in what I know is an unfinished state before it’s clear to me what I need to do next. This painting was originally done for an exhibition at Espresso Library in Cambridge in response to the space there; however once the exhibition was over I knew I had more work to do as I kept dwelling on the work, itching to make it feel complete. This is the final result.
