I found a nest in the skeleton of the ivy
A soft nest of country moss and dream herb. (Yvan Goll)

I remember the wonder I felt the first time I found a nest. It sparked daydreams of being snuggled up safe and sound as the wind howled and leaves rustled outside.

This painting has been created on a framed wooden cradle board. It is a mixed media piece comprising of Acrylic Paint, Graphite, Oil Pastel, Ink, Coloured Pencil and Collage (including a mix of vintage paper and paper hand made by the artist). The painting is 61cm by 61cm, has been sealed with three layers of satin varnish to protect the work and comes ready to hang.

'Daydreams of Inhabiting Uninhabitable Places' has over 14 layers of paint and collage contained within it. Building it up layer by layer creates depth, texture and history. The lumps and bumps on the surface make it almost tactile and the interplay of shape next to line, collage next to paint and colour next to monocrome creates interest and drama within the piece.

This piece has been selected by Artizan Gallery to be included in their 'Artizan Women's Open Exhibition'. The exhibition will be open to the public from the 19th of May through to the 30th of June and you can purchase this piece in person at the gallery (Artizan Gallery, 7 Lucius St, Torquay TQ2 5UW) or from
