Wings and Feathers - A collection of new paintings

The majority of my working life has been spent painting birds. What has interested me in these

endeavours is the variation between different types of birds whether they be a finch, conure or

macaw - in particular, what characteristics are specific to each species and how to demonstrate

this visually. In this exhibition the work is less concerned with this form of illustration and

instead presents the feathers in a more contemporary style, ordered and carefully placed to evoke

a quiet calm from their spacing and balance.
