Back in the studio

It is just wonderful to be back in the studio after nearly a year due to illness and recovery. So I am very excited about my new stains from US Pigments – strong bright colours that I have displayed well on these lovely little porcelain bowls. 

Playing with mark and colour

One of my interests is the “space” between the “art buyer” and the “artwork object”. Initially when a piece of art is purchased there is a connection, possibly a wisdom or a beauty – an aesthetic magic, a ‘wow’ factor, the feeling that this object is something special –  I have to have it, I…
