Verdigris - An exhibition of paintings


It has been a crazy year for us all - I managed to find some peace in my garden planting vegetables and joy in playing with paint.

After creating several pieces I was fairly pleased with, I decided to have a show. For four months, I painted almost every day. The house was completely taken over by rolls of linen canvas, brushes, tubes and bottles of paint, and gold, silver and copper leaf.

I am not a natural painter, so I struggle with every canvas. It is a bumpy ride of anticipation and joy, followed by self-doubt, loathing of the piece and the process, then, I persevere and eventually I finish when I am pleased. Every single painting takes at least twice as long as I think it will!

The pieces were exhibited at The Bermuda Society of Arts from 26 November until 13 January. There were five other women artists showing at the same time. It was an honour to be a part of such an incredible show.

Some of the pieces are still available - if you are interested and would like to see them in person, let me know...

Shelley & Jacques

This was plan C for Shelley and Jacques. They had planned two other weddings earlier in the year that had to be cancelled. But if you believe that everything happens the way it is supposed to, this divine wedding was certainly confirmation of that. Their Plan C could have been awful - outside, on an island with no tent at the end of November. But it was absolutely perfect! It had rained the night before, but on the morning of their wedding, the sky cleared and it was warm and just beautiful!

Thank you so much for having me capture your wedding, it was an honour to witness the joy, the tears and the incredible tenderness you have for each other.
