Russian rose

This portrait was done with the traditional Russian folklore art in mind.I used mixed media and a bit of collage to finish off the frame of this painting.The reference photo of this very pretty woman was given to me by a friend and I asked permission to use it and publish my interpretation on line.

The angel of harvest

This portrait is a mixture of techniques which were used organically with not too much planing.When the background was glued down I realised that this lady was a very noble person and the shape of the collaged ears of wheat reminded me of wings so the title came as an obvious choice…

Anne with an E (TV series)

“Anne with an E” based on Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery is a TV series described as a coming-of-age story about an outsider who fights for acceptance, for her place in the world and for love.”
I love the character of this young girl who is very close to nature and often depicted with flowers and butterflies. Here is my own version done with watercolours and pencils.
