Whale breaching in the moonlight

One of my latest 'moon and stars' paintings. I love painting these mixed media pieces and they are getting bigger all the time. This one is 50 x 65 cm but I'm planning some giant ones next. It'll  be my first adventure in painting large pieces - think I need a bigger studio...

Incoming tide SOLD

I love creating abstracts - you never really know how they'll come out. This mini abstract, just 15 x 10 cm is sparkly, textured and glistens in the light. With flowing aqua and gold colours, this piece reminds me of the ocean tide coming in on a sun-drenched tropical beach. I think I might have a go at some giant abstracts too...

Acrylic abstract on canvas

One of my latest acrylic abstracts with copper and chrome and a mix of shimmering purple and aqua.
