Twilight Grace is a 40x40x1,5 inches large original oil painting of an art nouveau style landscape with a white owl. The landscape shows a winter forest scene with a white lake at the bottom and a white owl swooping down from the trees. She is the silent herald of twilight. I painted this in January when purple, yellow, orange and pink are often seen in the evenings as the sun is setting through the naked trees. I was trying to capture the exact moment when the last beam of sun falls through a forest which acts as a signal for owls to start hunting. I painted the barn owl very carefully as I wanted her to look pristine against the slightly odd background of winter trees and white veils that I used to try and show the transition between the day and the night. Painting on deep edge canvas with white edges, ready to hang on wall, no frame necessary.

I am a professional artist based in Sussex and I paint large original landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.
My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I am in that day.
I am inspired by the patterns of nature and the energy, colours and spaces of the landscapes and animals around me.
I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.
All of my paintings have a story added in to them - sometimes humorous, sometimes mystical, sometimes with a message of hope or encouragement.
My aim is to make art that offers a glimpse of spaces and possibilities where people can escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better – even if just for a little while.
