Title or Location: Macaws
My inspiration for this piece was simply my love of birds. I recall well our visits to the local tourist attraction ?Birdworld? as a child, the squawking, chattering and colourful plumage fascinated me. We also had pet birds, including budgies, cockatiels and lovebirds. I now have three conure birds - Indigo, Louie and Kiki - all of whom have different personalities and colourations. For this piece I have worked in water-soluble oils and hope to have captured not only their beautiful colours

Title or Location: Fields and Skies Blewbury Oxfordshire
A friend asked me to create a painting for her to give to her sister as wedding gift. She sent me some some ideas of colour pallettes she liked and I used a photo I had taken of the landscape in Oxfordshire as inspiration. I painted the whole canvas bright pink first and let it dry and then painted on top.

Katy fit right in to the five acre farm and spent each day

Title or Location: Jammin'
This piece, along with a few others was created for use as "merch" to sell at music events. I'm also a singer songwriter so I'm always looking for ways to bring my art and music together. The original idea for this painting was completed on the computer but the idea of a big display banner popped into my mind and I decided to do a large canvas. The canvas is loose, about 36 x 42 inches. Acrylic on 12oz canvas and is currently hanging in my living room here in Gresham, Oregon USA. Thanks for your
