Birds of Britain at West Boldon Lodge

A few years ago I did some workshops at an environmental education centre in West Boldon. There were some paintings I did that must still be on display as I'd heard people were asking about them. As my work has changed a lot over the years - especially with the new combination and mixed media techniques - I decided to do them a new set.

Birds of Britain comprises eight canvases depicting various species. All photographic studies were captured in the North East from Washington Wetlands up to The Farne Islands. The birds were painted and scanned, combined with original imagery and printed to canvas.

Currently on display at West Boldon the work will be travelling to other venues so watch this space!
