About The Artwork

Flight of Fancy – a soaring of imagination. We are surrounded by beauty, we sometimes fail to see. For some, seagulls are a nuisance, I think they are a beautiful part of our natural world and with this painting I am celebrating them. It is beautiful to watch them hover and dance in the wind, in rolls and dives. Without knowing it, seagulls perform aerobatics to entertain people watching from below. The concept of ‘negative space’ also plays into this painting. The idea that absence can be as eloquent as presence. [Nat Geo] When you first look at the painting, what do you see? The large planes of aquamarine? Or the birds, or the graffiti like background? And, do the birds move in and out of the painting? What do you see when you are up close? What do you see when you stand further back? So many questions. So much detail. Get lost in this painting. Flights of Fancy – is finished in a semi gloss patina. The finish is naturally organic and not machine looking, as if the gulls brushed water on with its wings. Edge painted, wired and ready to hang. Cradled wood panel.

Shipping & Returns

Delivery Time:Typically 5-7 business days for domestic shipments, 10-14 business days for international shipments. Art and Design are part insight, part inspiration, and a lot – of invention. In my studio, accidents happen, and that moves my work forward. It is always exciting to watch work take on a life of its own. I begin with the end in mind, and always land in a different place. I work hard to develop original works – avoiding trends and following the direction of the work – in the moment. My colourful works reflect my love of colour, and design. Works are held in private and public collections worldwide.
