The Three of Us

Acrylics 122 x 91 cms My model's husband is a serving member of our armed forces. I have tried to portray through the unconscious tension presented by my model, the strength, the vulnerability and the loneliness of those who hold the family together as they wait their loved ones return from active service. I have her seated on her favourite couch with her most constant companions, her two cats.

The Diarist; Peter Wilkins

Acrylics 91 x61cms This is a portrait of Peter seated in a local cafe, coffee at his side, surrounded by activity, in his own small bubble, adding to his diary.
