My furniture, my children, my coffee pot transported somewhere else. I think I created this image to sooth the constant fear of homelessness and not being able to keep my children safe.
Painting in progress above and below a selection of details from the finished painting.
I worked out that I’ve produced over 60 paintings since July, not all successful. Some paintings change a lot, some are never resolved or become an overworked mess.

I am updating my shop with lots of new work, acrylic on canvas in a variety of sizes, you can see them here.
