Reach for the Sky


Mixed Media on Canvas 40.5 x 51cm

This painting depicts ambition and doing the best for yourself, and for friends and family and laughing together, striving to be strong and to be the best person you can be which, of course, is sometimes tricky in reality.

Inspiration was my family’s trip to Finland where every day we remarked on the incredible beauty of the sky. ‘Look at the sky’ became our saying of the holiday, and the sight was particularly awesome when we snowmobiled to the top of the world, or so it seemed, to watch the sun setting. It was a steep, incident full journey but well worth the breathtaking scene on arrival.

I have used natural pigments combined with Plaster of Paris sieved like snowflakes falling onto some surfaces, transparent pigment & opaque household paint, gorgeous colours from Farrow & Ball and Designers Guild, to make this painting.



If you are interested in any of my paintings and would like to discuss possible exhibitions or commissions then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
