Garden Icons

Executed on gesso panels, acid free Linen and canvas bound boards, these gilded paintings seek to elevate the everyday garden visitors to the level of importance that they have acquired through these times of lockdown for so many of us.

We all heard the birds singing more clearly,

the sky was bluer without the vapour trails of air travel.

Icons can be commissioned too
