A series of little gardens of colour, painted at the end of last year as the days became darker and the winter winds howled. These little abstract paintings were my light in the dark. The vibrant colours, free-spirited brushstrokes, and buttery quality of the oil paint warmed my soul throughout the winter, carrying me through the colder months with such a smile. Smiles I am thrilled to share!

While most of the original abstract oil paintings have found homes, many of these enchanting images live on as delightful little art greeting cards, ready to bring a smile to anyone’s face. Dive in and enjoy!

A glimpse into the studio

Beyond the landscapes, my abstract life

There is simply nothing - absolutely nothing - more essential to my art practice than the countless hours I spend mucking around with paint.
