Simply Greek

Imagined landscapes...

Memories of the Greek islands

This collection originates in the imagination and romantic memory of long-ago travels around the Greek Islands… the narrow streets and jumbled rooftops of Skyros; the whitewashed village houses of the Ionians and the Cyclades. Nostalgic impressions created in the blazing heat of August sun, now a part of me.

In the colour of the Greek flag, these iconic images  – half-remembered and half-imagined – are created in acrylics using a range of experimental and wonderfully unpredictable processes, including some combination of monoprint, collage or acrylic transfer. Paint is variously dragged with a card; incised with a stick; applied with a knife; stamped with a found object; pushed through a stencil… whatever works to achieve the desired effect.

Taking the process a step further, my graphic designer husband, Mick, scans all original paintings and prepares them for professional printing. This enables us to offer ready-to-hang canvases or ready-to-frame prints in a wide range of sizes to suit your walls. When enlarged, all the feeling and texture of the artwork is beautifully amplified – producing a bold, vibrant image with the energy and spontaneity of the original.
