STEW Magazine

I'm very pleased to have done a commission for issue 3 of the children's magazine STEW.  It's a really good read and well worth a look.  I illustrated an interview with the conductor Mark Wigglesworth.  You can see it in the latest May/June issue!

Heron

A quick painting to use up what was left in my palette at the end of the day.  I actually saw this strange sight today - a grey heron perched on the roof of the house opposite.  It wasn't there for long because some seagulls chased it off, but it flew right past my bedroom window!

Happy New Year!

A painting to illustrate one of my favourite short stories, The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.  If you don't know it, it's about a convalescent woman who becomes increasingly obsessed with a woman-shaped stain on the wallpaper of her room.
