Self Compassion, Blue Study

Description : This self study takes my artwork 'Self Compassion' one step further. I started by drawing a self portrait with two hands simulataneously; with pastel in the left hand and charcoal in the right. I then applied a layer of blue watercolour. In 'Self Compassion' I wanted to connect with myself without thought or analysis. The blue layer took that further, highlighting elements that I saw. It surprised me how soft and warm the result was, despite using blue and how I can see my personality in the painting.

Welcome to my artwork

I'm a visual artist, specialising in watercolour; I also work in charcoal and pastel and write poetry.  

I started painting in England where I grew up and now live in Melbourne Australia; however my subject and client-base is international.  

I love watercolour!  To me, the subtlety and drama of watercolour, its beauty and depth captures the world we live in like no other medium.

I believe that, just as we have character, so do trees, clouds and the earth.  A tree can be strong, willowy or majestic; clouds can be threatening, soft or peaceful. Watercolour is so vibrant that it can catch these nuances.  

My paintings are free-flowing whereas my poems are sharp, quick and intense - whether full of laughter or pain. 

I feel very privileged to be able to connect with you in this way.  Thank you for looking at my work, I hope it gives you joy and feeling.
