Miami….wow!

I have just arrived in Miami for the next exciting chapter of my life.  I am very excited to be here and needed to post this picture of the view from the airplane as we were landing.  Since I was young I have always had that Christmas morning, over anticipated, knots in the stomach, exciting […]

Tokyo

It’s very often the people you see or meet on your travels that stick in you mind more than the actual place or architectural buildings.  This is true of my visit to Tokyo.  Last month I spent the day doing a sightseeing city tour.  I viewed the usual touristy haunts, the Tokyo tower, Meiji Shrine, […]

Old meets New – Shanghai

Today I find myself gazing out of my hotel window watching the sunset over the busy city, reflecting on my first impressions of this great place.  Divided by the Huang Pu River, the riverbanks of Shanghai showcase what seems like different eras. On one side of the river is The Bund, a quaint, colonial-style area […]

Farewell Hong Kong

I am very sad this week to be packing up my belongings and leaving my memories and friends behind in Hong Kong.  My partner and I are relocating to the States and will be starting our new adventure in Miami in February.  Although Miami is certainly an exciting place to be moving on to, I […]

‘Colour Fusion’ – Hong Kong Exhibition

Last night was the opening party of my first Hong Kong exhibition.  ‘Colour Fusion’ is a combination show, which celebrates the friendship and art practice with my good friend Rachel, who I went to university with over 10 years ago. Although our work is very different is style, one thing unites our work- and that […]

Taxi for Paul

I have just completed ‘Taxi for Paul’.  I really enjoyed painting this image.  My inspiration for the painting comes from a combination of thoughts.  The first being the typical sight of the red Hong Kong taxi, whizzing into the busy city with skyscraper backdrops. Secondly my observations of the crazy nightlife that Hong Kong has, […]

Route 6:06

This weeks finished painting will always remind me of Hong Kong central at around 6.06pm.  The hustle and bustle of the city; Hundreds of people trying to get taxis to take them home, cars honking, lights flashing, crazy traffic, buses, trams, crowds of people…everywhere.  My image of the city at rush hour in one word; […]

Hong Kong Blues

Looking out of my window on a rainy Hong Kong day made me realize how much the weather can impact your mood and opinions on a place. Last March I made my first trip to Macau. Macau is a fascinating little place, sometimes even described as the Las Vegas of the East and is an […]

8:02

Today I started work on a piece I have titled, ‘8:02’. One of the biggest attractions in Hong Kong is its daily lightshow, officially known as the ‘Symphony of lights’.  It is tacky and spectacular all in the same sentence!  Every evening, at 8pm, for about 14 minutes, 44 buildings on both sides of the […]

Bali Flower

I have just finished a painting for my friends 30th birthday present.  There is nothing more wonderful than painting something that makes you feel happy every time you put your brush to the canvas.  This is true of ‘Bali Flower’.  I chose a photograph I’d taken of a ‘Frangipani’ flower for the reference to my […]
