New Paintings 2020

August 2020: As it has been impossible to travel- I visited Brazil in my imagination and was inspired by Antonio Bolivar Salvador to create my abstract “Lord of the forest” series of paintings. I will be exhibiting these in Surrey in November. Denbies exhibition 2nd -8th November

Antonio Bolivar Salvador Obituary

when he spoke of the Jaguar, lord of the forest, the embodiment of power strength and violence, he would begin to growl deep in his throat. Antonio’s head would move around warily as if he were on the prowl himself. When he mentioned Anaconda the great snake god his hands would slither, swim and twine round each other, getting faster, until still smiling-he might leap from his chair and fling his snake arms around whoever was listening to him.”
