the perfect couple

So I have heard that every full moon the hairy man descends from the mountains to the sea where the mermaid rises from the depths to greet him under the moonlight...

A bit of a boogie woogie; get down goes on, or so I have heard!

Imagine my surprise when I looked out of my window to see a mermaid sitting in the garden. She had the most fabulous pinkish red hair.

 I wanted to share some more painty things I have created... Its all about enjoying the messiness of the paint and delighting in the wet sticky colour (just like at kindergarden) ...I incorporate glitter and yummy coloured dirts and ochres which I have been grinding from collected rocks. I have become quite a connoisseur of both glitter and 'dirt' ahem ochres. Mostly these pieces loosely reflect the island landscape of my home; the mountains, the granite boulders, the sea, the reef. But essentially they are an excuse to be lost in the moment and enjoy the materials for what they are and to be lost in the play of contrasts, forms, textures and colours and various wet and dry elements.

I now have large prints of my paintings available on canvas or paper.
The print quality is beautiful.
You can contact me directly to order custom sizes of these.

I love the way they are looking in large scale.
I have also been adding these to my etsy store.
I would love to actually paint this big most of the time but I just do not have the room at the moment. 
That (a bigger studio space) is a work in progress!
