I am proud of new work from my summer residency at Beaulieu, Hampshire. The studio space in the newly restored Old Mill building in the village has allowed me to complete several new series of work, starting with ‘Designs on modern India and Nepal’.
These works came about as I was on a solo journey in these inspiring countries 6 months ago. I was therefore drawn to the subjects of contemplative scenes around dining alone. I began work at once in Nepal and travelled with the canvasses rolled up on an aeroplane to complete here in England.
Scenes from Gorkana, an ancient beach town near Goa, Varanasi and Mysore, India to Pokhara and Kathmandu in Nepal provided me with life enriching experiences that I hope are captured in these works.
More recently I have drawn inspiration from choice locations around this magnificent estate resulting in an entirely new series of sculpture and paintings.
