The sea, the sea

A couple of years ago I was on holiday lying on the beach. I was bored with the book I had brought with me to read, so I though I would have a go at capturing the glittering nature of the Aegean Sea in front of me on an app called Paper on my iPad. I was really pleased with the results and I have since added more seascapes to my portfolio. You can see them here, in the Thalassa Thalassa section.

My foils have arrived

My foils have arrived; all the way from America, and rather beautiful they are too. Their patina is dull, their colours are rich and I am delighted.

Goodbye to Berlin

We're just back, and I'm bursting with ideas. What an amazing summer in an amazing city. I took hundreds of photos, this is one of the last ones I took of the Memorial of the Fashion Center in HausvogteiplatzThis link opens in a new tab.

Day trip to Dessau

We went on a trip out to Dessau today, and while I knew that the BauhausThis link opens in a new tab had had a building there, I had no idea that the original building was still there and functioning as a design college and gallery. Needless to say, I got very excited when I glimpsed the iconic balconies in the distance on (obviously) Bauhausstraɮe.

You can apparently stay overnight in the student rooms too. Maybe next time, we can explore the Dessau nightlife.

Hans Arp

Hans Arp is one of my all time favourite artists. I was very excited when I heard that there was a retrospective exhibition of his collages, prints and sculptures in Berlin while we were there. The exhibition is on until 11 October 2015 at the Georg Kolbe MuseumThis link opens in a new tab on the outskirts of Berlin, and is an absolute delight! Go and see it if you can.

"Rubbish" everywhere

OK, it's strted again already... whenever I stay anywhere for more than a couple of days I can't not start to collect bits of "rubbish"; though I prefer to call it Merz (thank you for the continual inspiration Mr Schwitters).

Germany calling

Just arrived, and I can't believe I'm here. I'm so excited to be staying in Berlin for the next few weeks. It turns out that I am living three blocks away from where the Wall used to be near what is now the Mauerpark.

After an initial scoot around, the area looks really vibrant, with lots of shops, cafés and restaurants to try out. I can't wait to get to know the area, and the city a little better.

New paintings

I have been working recently on a series of more traditional landscape paintings. I am working with monochrome acrylic on a tile background of coloured metallic foil. They will eventually have their own folder in my portfolio section but for now, here's a picture of the stream/ford at Littlebeck in Yorkshire.

New design

Hello. I have been meaning to redesign my website to better showcase my work for some time now and have finally done it. The portfolio section will expand over time to show new work.

I have simplified the design and layout of the site and have added a mini "blog" to the homepage so I can tell you what I have been up to, exhibitions I have seen etc. etc. I have also added requested functionality to allow you to see larger versions of the individual works. I like the changes, and I'd be happy to hear what you think.
