Mini Beasts

I love insects and birds, most of my holiday photos are of things that crawl and fly…and the occasional flower. When I was little my Dad used to show me worms, spiders and beetles in the garden, I liked nothing more than spending time with him and constantly asking ‘what’s that?’, while crushing some poor little arthropod in my small hand.

Using my photos I create paintings of mini beasts in gouache on small canvases. The smallest so far was 5x5cm and the largest 14.8x21cm (A5), and many sizes in between.
