My work will be shown alongside many artists I admire and the three paintings on show are:

Tentsmuir Forest (Purple) - 30 x 100 cm

Duthie Park - 59 x 59 cm

Trees at Midnight - 60 x 90 cm

Three reasons why I paint on fabric…

As you might know, I am an artist who paints on fabric. A few people
have been asking why I do this, so here are my top three reasons…

1. I can incorporate the pattern, colour and texture of the fabric into my paintings (aka it will match your curtains).

2. You don’t need to frame the painting, because the edges are covered with beautiful fabric.

3. The painting becomes a dynamic, textured surface that catches the light in different ways.

Painting makes Secret Art Prize long list

My painting ‘Trees At Midnight’ has made the long list for The Secret Art Prize, which is run by Curious Duke Gallery in London. It’s great news, as the gallery has a slightly quirky, street-art sort of style, which I think would be an amazing environment for my work. 

As my painting has made it to the long list, it is eligible for the ‘People’s Choice Award’ and the winner will directly make it through the final selection. The rest of the final works will be selected by this year’s judges, who are Radio 1’s Trevor Nelson, artist Mark Powell, director/curator Anna Smithson, art historian Ana Bambic Kostov, director Frankie Shea and writer Anna McNay. Fingers crossed as this is a great opportunity!

Voting runs until 28th August and you can take part here.
