About The Art

Whitewashed village houses set against a dazzling cobalt sky. The shimmering horizon of the Aegean. A distant fishing boat heading for harbour. Stepped streets and jumbled rooftops – bright red geraniums in  turquoise pots. Tiny hillside chapels and rickety taverna chairs. Sun faded shutters and peeling walls – layer upon layer telling the story of days gone by.

This evocative art is all about summer sunshine and a slower, more traditional way of life. Everyday street scenes, quickly captured in watercolour sketchbooks, find their way into a textured mixed media painting. Distant memories of long-ago travels around the Greek islands and the Mediterranean, are captured between layers of handwritten text, paint, ink and wax.
