‘To paint a portrait of a bird’ 2020
Mixed medium and collage on rag paper 760x560mm
Inspired by the poem ‘To paint the portrait of a bird’ by Jacques Prevert

Using metaphors that trigger the response to the poems verse….I go on a journey of discovery, mystery, expanding the unknown, and not compromising …First I connect and breath… then I start by responding by making marks using pencil, then isolating what stands out using inks, paint, paper and continue to build layer upon layer, fully feeling the words and imagine immensity.
