Product description:River Spell is a large colourful contemporary oil painting showing a kingfisher flying along a riverbank in summertime. Along the riverbank semi abstract flowers and a few trees compete for attention. The painting is textured and has an atmosphere of a late summer afternoon. It has been built up of several layers which overlap and make the scene ambiguous. I like the idea of worlds overlapping or being able to move from one universe to another and that is what the kingfisher is doing. She is casting a spell and flickering though veils. This is the third in a kingfisher series of paintings I have painted this year and was inspired by the first real life sighing I had of a kingfisher last summer. I am so used to watching wildlife on Countryfile that I get ridiculously excited when I see it for myself. These are gorgeous little birds and the river Ouse, which I was walking along in Sussex, was also beautiful as were the wildflowers that grow along the edges. This is dedicated to fellow walkers and those who are helping our wildlife and landscapes to thrive. It is 36x48x1.5 inches, is on white deep edge canvas, ready to hang, no frame needed.

As a child I taught myself to draw and paint by copying animals and horses out of books on an almost daily basis. Then in 1979 I did a foundation course at Chelsea and then a degree course at Brighton where I graduated in 1983 with a fine art degree in sculpture. I then worked in a studio on the seafront for a while making sculptures with an architect for clubs and hotels. ​ On moving to East Grinstead in the late 80's, I began painting for an art agent that specialised in...
