‘ King’s Cross Pond’ is an Oil Painting on Canvas I did of swimmers at King’s Cross Swimming Pond which was there from 2015-17. It is an oil painting of a group of friends relaxing by the King’s Cross open air pond, What a wonderful place, swimming in freshwater surrounded by gleaming modern buildings.. I visited the temporary swimming pond one warm summers evening with friends. We did an impromptu synchronised Swimming display and then swam around in the warm pond looking over the area behind King’s Cross from our elevated position. It was magical but ephemeral and I only went once before it was dismantled to make way for ( yet more) luxury flats. What an imaginative bit of planning by someone!

I paint, I draw, I make mosaics. I love vintage clothes and fabrics from around the world and I love faces, so I like to combine people and textiles in my figurative paintings. They might be wearing clothes and hats from my collection. My work has strong clear colours reminiscent of early Italian paintings. I also admire the work of artists such as Bonnard, Chagall and Matisse. Their bright colours and decorative playfulness chime with my own creative leanings.
My work has been exhibited in many countries and exhibitions over the years, including the John Player Portrait exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London and The Spirit of London Exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall. I have work on permanent public display in St George’s Hospital South London. A recent children’s Television series ‘ The Secret Life of Boys featured my work prominently on the walls of the main location and is now about to appear in series 2. Series 1 has been shortlisted for a BAFTA so my paintings might be included in a BAFTA too!
