Playing with Food

Taking inspiration from nature’s produce I painted a series of contemporary still life works, featuring seasonal produce and delectable desserts, plus an inedible cat!

In ‘Playing with Food’ I aimed to showcase the wonderful characters that are created when everyday foods are put in the spotlight.

From ‘Nosey Lemons’ and ‘Posh Pear’ to ‘Donut Quads’: foods with moods and unique personalities.

This exhibition continued my interest in painting domestic objects, which are often taken for granted, but which can be extraordinary in their own right.

I paint to counterbalance the stresses of life. Hence this series of quirky paintings really needed to show positivity to get me through the day!
