Birdlands, inspired by research into wetlands and the environment and the recent experience of lockdowns and a yearning for the natural world.

The birds are popping up at the top of the painting, there is a Phoenix rebirth element to this painting but I wanted it to transport you to another world, where the birds are in charge.

Maps and plans of wetlands have inspired the format as well as my own experience of walking in and around the wetlands centre which left me with no clear view, and a feeling of no way out. They are sometimes claustrophobic, yet rich with colour and pattern saturation.
