This body of work began sometime in the mid 1990's, as an experiment, seeing if I could adhere a dress to a canvas and create a painting over all the textures. "Dress painting" is a term I came up with to explain these when I simply couldn't think of anything better. Over the years they have evolved, with new elements of collage being added. Dress patterns, photographs, and embroidery all appear from time to time, as well as lino block prints, rubber stamps and gold leaf. I will use this space to explore the beginnings of this series, as well as showing my latest work. If the piece is available for sale you'll find the price at the bottom.

Studio slice #1

I have come up with a new little exercise for myself, a way of keeping in touch with you, and to hopefully keep this blog fresh and interesting. I'll be post a new little photo, a fragment of life inside my studio, almost every day. And when I paint something worthy of a whole blog, I'll slip that in too. So here we go, Studio Slice #1.
