In the studio


Oil paint on canvas, plywood, burlap, aluminium and driftwood

I am reflecting on how the materials sit alongside each other and what they could represent. I am getting a feel for the different surfaces and how the paint adheres to them.


Collage, stone, gouache and coffee on heavy khaki paper.

I have been experimenting with different tones of the same colour.



Coffee and ink on Blotting paper.

I am playing with natural materials in preparation for working onto burlap. The experimentation of using coffee and ink onto blotting paper has been successful as it is giving translucent layering that relates to what I am trying to say in my work.

I have had a successful day experimenting with materials with some surprising results.
