I started faking this painting by Henri Matisse about 4 weeks ago, with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club over on Facebook. I started doing these fakes when Ed began the sessions early in lockdown back in Spring 2020. It was easier then because it was, well, lockdown and I had a lot of time on my hands. Now, although there are still Covid19 restrictions, I’ve got a lot of work coming in, which is always good for a freelance artist, but it means I can’t crack on and finish the fakes I’ve got hanging around. Ah well, maybe I can get a couple of hours in over the New Year’s holiday break. I don’t think I have much more to do on this. A few alterations to her face and some patterns on her clothes and the chair should see it finished.
A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks
I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage 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.

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