Happy Customer!!

A very happy looking Kerri, on being presented with ‘Daily Greatness’, her surprise birthday present! Her best friend Sara commissioned this bespoke Shelf-Portrait oil painting of the most significant books describing their friendship – including a favourite mix-tape and the lip-balm which she is never without…
Lovely to be able to make people smile 🙂

'Morris Minor' with added cherry blossom…

Thrilled to have delivered my latest bespoke Shelf-Portrait ‘Morris Minor’ to the lovely Mel 🙂
I so enjoyed painting this one – it has some favourites of mine in, including a Duane Michals catalogue from an exhibition in Oxford I saw, a collection of Roger McGough poetry and, of course, the obligatory iconic Observers book.
…and doesn’t her garden look lovely scattered with cherry blossom!

Had a little ‘practice hang’ last week…

'Properties of Matter'

Down to London last week to deliver my latest bespoke Shelf-Portrait,
‘Properties of Matter’
My largest book painting to date at 50×100″ it was an absolute joy to paint 🙂
Very pleased with the result, as is the new owner!
