I’ve finally got around to getting the photos for the exhibition I had with willow sculptor Woody Fox in Aberystwyth last autumn off my phone and onto the internet! I’ve been so busy since then and now that I haven’t had a moment – but I’m delighted to share these with you now.
The paintings and prints are all my work and the willow is all his. We think our work fits really well together and we’re looking for galleries so we can work together again!
If you like what you see I do have a limited number of prints for sale.
My largest work with Woody’s beautiful white stag

Woody’s dragon. We had some fun hanging this one!
Our lions and another skull painting. Not that I’m obsessed with skulls or anything. This one is called Death as an Ally.
Our work fits so well together. A stag head hangs between my sibling fox and hare paintings

Exciting news – I’ll be showing some of my paintings and screen prints for the first time ever in a show with amazing willow sculptor Woody Fox at the Art House Gallery in Aberystwyth in September.
The exhibition will be called Wild Sight and it will run from Friday 9th September to Saturday 1st October. I’m really very excited about it. I’m starting my two-year part-time Master’s in Illustration: Authorial Content at Falmouth in September so it feels like a real time of new beginnings and adventures and such for me.
About my work
The work I’ll be showing at the exhibition is personal rather than commissioned and reflects on themes of nature, power, death and innocence. Expect hares, stags and skulls. I’ve painted for many years but have only just started to work out what I want to explore with my personal work.
There’ll be prints and cards of my work for sale at the gallery. I do hope you can make it!
For the first time I’m selling an original painting via my prints microsite. It’s a large (22 x 18 inches) acrylic on canvas board. It’s a roe deer skull on a gold background.
