I think this captures the spirit of Britain and how I feel in summer 2016

Waiting for the Rain to Stop

Waiting for the Rain to Stop

About this work

I was having a difficult time with myself and my art work. I was on my way to speak to someone about it. It started to rain heavily so I stopped along with several other people under a bridge. The rain was teeming down and we were all sheltering there in a huddle. It was a bit of a turning point. The painting depicted exactly how I felt, which helped me to connect positively with my work as well.

Margate Lighthouse

About this work

I was visiting the Turner Contemporary art gallery and came out at dusk. The sight of the lighthouse against the sky was better than any experience I had in the gallery.

River Stour, Canterbury

River Stour, Canterbury

About this work

I spent a weekend with my niece when collecting my new cat, a stray which had moved into her house, much to the dismay of her own cats. On a whim, we went on a boat trip on the River Stour. It was curious, in a small boat surrounded by tall medieval houses on both sides. A ducking stool and a huge bronze mask on one of the river banks. I could imagine Chaucer.....
