Hmm. An ink drawing collaged onto decorated papers. Sadly the paper turned out to be very delicate and one of her legs fell off in the process – poor lady! But I like the picture anyway. Image 8×10.5 inches (20×27 cm).

A suitable picture for Easter and spring. Hope we see the sun… Image 5.5×7.25 inches. This is a mixed media painting which I completed while following an online course with Diane Culhane. There aren’t enough hours in the day to do all the painting I want to – all such fun.

It’s available as a print, greeting card or phone case.

A monotype worked in several layers of gouache on Arches paper. The design is loosely based on a picture of an old turf cutting which is said to represent deities. It is from the Gog Magog Hills – an area steeped in tales of mysterious appearances, buried giants and ghosts. (The name ‘hills’ is slightly misleading as they are not very high: just definitely above the flat plain and therefore giving a commanding view.)

Artwork is 7.5×5.5 inches (19×14 cm).

A tiny collage picture (ATC size) which includes a reproduction of a detail from a larger painting. It is so strange how the tilt of the head, the surrounding colour etc. changes everything – she looked quite happy before!

The original portrait sold long ago but this new version is available as a print in various formats here.

A collaged pattern of pieces cut from prepared papers and stuck on a monotype background. The theme was suggested by a couple of the shapes but the pattern is abstract really and is one of an experimental set using simplified 3-tone versions of photographs as a starting point. 7×5 inches (18×13 cm).

I had this framed and Adam the framer said it was foxes so I renamed it Vulpes vulpes! But it’s still listed under the old title here.

Most of my current collages are made with decorated papers I prepare myself but this one I ‘made earlier’ has always been one of my favourites. The shape of the house is more-or-less as it should be but it was actually black and white.   The collaged additions are not Caribbean!

Reproduction and iPhone case available here.

A small picture which evolved through collage and many layers of paint. The title comes I think from Mervyn Peake’s Letters from a Lost Uncle and always makes me smile. Image 6.75 inches square (17 cm square) on heavyweight watercolour paper.
