Following the outbreak of Covid 19 I started to respond to the situation. In autumn 2020 I began a series of watercolours in a book made of Khadi paper. The book took me to a space of expression on the consequences of Covid-19, on personal lives as well as on economic outcomes.
There was and still is a sort of contradiction between blunt statistics, sheer facts, numbers of deaths, the state of the economy, the loss of the known, the routine and the organic side of things. The virus is part of life, and life isn’t always about beauty and miracles, it is also about destroying, colonisation of cells, invasion.
To illustrate that contradiction I chose watercolour for its organic feel, contrasted with texts illustrating the cold facts we now hear every day of our lives, about the changes, the losses, the restrictions.
Eventually I made 40 individual works on the subject, from which these six are an extract.
My painting “Places not Linked, Places That Disappear 2” (mixed media on canvas 31.5x 32cms) has been accepted in Storiel annual open exhibition 2019 in Bangor.
The painting is for sale and will be there until September the 07th 2019.
This exhibition is now finished and I was glad to hear that IN LIMBO 3 has sold:
10 of my latest work are on display in Balaclafa CARN in Caernarfon. The festival is a non profit event to raise money for Bangor Women’s Aid and to celebrate the creativity and talent of women in North Wales.
All works are for sale and part of the money will go to Women’s Aid Bangor . The festival will go on until the 6th of April.

I am pleased to have been chosen among other artists in North Wales to have 5 of my works exhibited in the café of the Gallery Mostyn in Llandudno.
You can see the work on the first floor where the café is:
Three paintings of the series In Limbo, as well as Outreaching Limbs and Winter will be on show for four months. Come if you can!
Some photos of the Polymorph paintings in Parc Meurig Bethesda
My Polymorphs sat against the trees like tired little deflated creatures. It was a bit more windy than I thought, and again the paintings looked like tiny details in the woods. I think the sun bringing some shadows helped pop up the colours that I chose to be in contrast with the existing colours of the trees.
Branches, dead leaves and moss all ended up on the surface of the canvas, and very quickly some insects started to investigate the paintings.
The weather was much better than last year and lots of people came to see art and performances. A big thank you to Lisa for organising this event every year.
