I am currently working on a large landscape painting. I am also working on three individual  projects. Over a period of seven years, I am painting a series of plants and flowers from home, for my next solo exhibition. I paint them directly from life, in the garden or studio. In this series, my work is an intuitive responce to natural life, focusing on drawing & colour.

'Once upon a time...' is an on-going project that broadly deals with a theme of love and wonder. I aim to paint 366 seahorse shells with contrasting backgrounds over time, one for each day of a single leap year. This project is a tribute to my love of painting. It is also a tribute to a majestic and now endangered creature
from the sea.

I am currently painting a collection of handwritten envelopes. The handwritten envelopes have colourful stamps & postage marks. I am also painting a series of Newspapers depicting people & events of interest.
