“When you paint with just one colour, white and black you appreciate the value of that colour.”

This painting is an exploration of the colour pink using rose acrylic paint with white and black to explore the range of tones possible from just one colour. The colours were mixed on the canvas during the painting process rather than on a palette in this abstract design inspired by a holed hagstone and created with a range of techniques using brushes and hands to move the paint around.

Value In Pink is an original acrylic painting on canvas measuring 20 x 16 x 0.7 inches with white edges. It features a hagstone design with the marks, lines, shapes and textures being allowed to form organically on the canvas during the painting process. It has been signed on both the front and back.

“Recovery can be slow and painful but it’s necessary.”

I painted this following a period of depression as a tool for healing, recovery and growth. It is an emotive piece; a visual representation of the healing process that I, and many others go through, on their path to wellness and mental health.

“My heart, it bleeds all over the bed.”

My Heart is a small, original mixed media painting on canvas measuring approximately 5 x 7 x 0.7 inches with unpainted white edges. We have all experienced heart ache in life, that feeling that our hearts are haemorrhaging life blood, crying their own tears of pain for a lost love or opportunity. At one such point in my life this is the raw painting that surfaced from it; dark, textured, patchy and filled with interest from the layered ‘bandaging’ beneath to the wire and garnet areas that spring forward from the heart itself.

“At the root of the chaos of life is a place of calm connecting all things, it is the orange/red ball.”

I spent many years training as a Chios Healer and Master Teacher, which is a relatively new system of energy healing. One of the basic meditational symbols for finding peace and connection to the Universe through this system is that of the orange-red ball. It has become a symbol of calm for me, like a shield to the craziness going on all around me. Do you feel what it is to be the orange-red ball?

Orange-Red Ball is a small original acrylic painting on canvas measuring 5 x 7 x 0.7 inches with unpainted white edges and would be ideal stood on or hung in an altar, shrine or in a meditational space. It features a smooth, flat orange-red ball surrounded by heavy textured blue acrylic, black spirals and tendrils and silver highlights to the background. It has been signed on both the front and back.
