Artworks created for and inspired by the beautiful island of Turks and Caicos. My brother was living and working on this Island and I was inspired to create a series of work based on his photographs and stories. It is the first time that I have painted street scenes and landscapes and I really enjoyed this new way of working and the style I developed for it, through a stack of preliminary works and sketches. The paintings took me approximately a year to complete from the initial design process, working out the sizes I wanted to work on to accommodate bulk shipping restrictions, having the frames made, stretching the canvases and the completed paintings, all of which have been shipped to the island itself to be exhibited there. I really enjoyed the new challenges of this project and discovered a passion for painting buildings! The style is inspired by a Greek artist, Xanthos Hadjisoteriou, who’s work I fell in love with when I first came to Cyprus.
