Glyndebourne Festival Artists 2013

Glyndebourne Festival Artists 2013

This summer I have been invited to exhibit a body of work at Glyndebourne Opera House as part of the Summer Season. I have made work based on the opera Ariadne auf Naxos, which they are presenting at the beginning of the season.

Mostly oil on gesso, the pieces explore the notion of Ariadne’s dreams and transformation whilst on the island, and use an Owl to symbolise her dream state and a hare as a symbol of fertility, rejuvenation and rebirth. All the images contain a golden thread- which she used to help Theseus defeat the Minotaur.

My work is on show until September- and has already started selling!

New Website

on Friday, 22 February 2013. Posted in News

My new website is finally launched after many months of work. Totally my fault- it’s so difficult to prioritise getting all the info and pictures sorted when you’re also trying to make new work at the same time.

I am hopeful that it now more clearly identifies the two separate elements that make up my creative life, as a Designer and as an Artist.
It also now gives an option to email me directly with any queries or comments, and provides a direct link to my Twitter feed.
