Finally Finished Mockney

This has taken me ages to finish. It’s a copy of a painting by David Hockney – someone on Facebook, I forget who, called it my Mockney. One of my lockdown challenges has been to improve my painting skills so I joined the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook and learn by copying a work by a famous artist every Friday lunchtime. The original has so many layers of paint, put on in loads of dots and dashes and that’s why it has taken me so long. I’ve really enjoyed it though, I’ve been completely in the zone with it. I think it’s the 16th I’ve done so far.



A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left.

In this one, I combined the image of the bird with snippets of text of things my Nana used to say. She used to take me to Swansea Museum a lot when I was small and I could hear her voice in the back of my head as I was sitting and drawing the birds and bugs.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
