“Haremony”

‘HAREMONY’ is comprised of 3 key elements. Harmony: ​A harmonious rainbow of colours in the form of flowing fur-like brush strokes in an impressionist art style. Yin-Yang: ​The balance of opposing forces (there can be no light without darkness) positivity post pandemic. Moon:​​ a moon-gazing hare brings good fortune and abundance. The textured moon is made from silver leaf with photoluminescent craters that glow in the dark

Day & Night

2021 Eye Art Trail – The Way Ahead Now in its third year, the art sculpture trail in Eye, Suffolk, features 26 large, beautifully decorated, tortoises and hares and 16 minis. The trail is designed to represent The Way Ahead as we navigate our way out of the pandemic and it is thought-provoking to see the different local artists’ individual interpretations. The sculptures will race to The Oaksmere, Eye where they will be sold at auction on Thursday 16th September 2021, raising money for the Blossom Charity enabling them to continue providing programmes so that men and women can make long lasting changes in their lives.

2020 | Eye Trail of Hope

In aid of the BLOSSOM CHARITY

“Hope”

It was a great honour to be asked again to participate in the Eye art mini trail. This years theme is ‘hope’ and the sculptures are hares and tortoises. My mini tortoise is painted with feathers and is accompanied by the poem Hope by Emily Dickinson. In this poem, Dickinson is creating a metaphor of hope through a bird. The hope that is within the speaker is much like a bird that continues to fly inside her. While we may all experience some dark times, hope can offer some encouragement. The poem opens with the line ‘Hope is the thing with feathers.’

Eye Sheep Art Trail 

“Baa Baa Bug Hunt” 

Hidden amongst the leaves I have painted 12 bugs for children / grown-ups to find.

In its hometown of Eye, The Blossom Charity has organised its first Sheep Art Trail – a theme chosen in celebration of the town’s historic connection to the Suffolk wool trade – in which sheep sculptures have been sponsored by local businesses and painted by local artists. Between Thursday 18th July and Friday 6th September, 24 life-size and beautifully decorated sheep, along with 7 painted lamb sculptures, will be adorning the town for all to see. The sheep will then flock to Kenton Hall, in Debenham, Stowmarket, where they will be auctioned on Thursday 12th September 2019. The money raised will enable the charity to continue providing the programmes and resources necessary to help the women they support.
