Art For Showhouses

A little over a month ago I was contacted by the interior designer of a property development company who had an urgent need for some bespoke artwork for their latest showhome. There really wasn't very much time for development so I had to pull out all the stops to make "Wetlands III" - a triptych for the dining area in polished plaster and lacquer. It is so much lighter and brighter than my usual work and incorporates the key colours the designer has chosen for the interior....mink, aubergine, silver, taupe and pearls.

 I also managed to make a textured and gilded piece for the entrance hall which was inspired by a photograph I came upon of a magnified cross-section of the stem of a sapling.

 Available to buy through my website.

Which means that I now have time to develop a couple of ideas which have been fighting to get out of my mind and into reality for a couple of years now....I can't wait!
