Party Faces

Artwork details: 3 drawings in pencil and coloured pencil, 4 x 10 inches (10 x 25 cm), 2006.

This was a triptych I did especially for Bridgwater Arts Centre's 'Celebration' Christmas exhibition. A Masquerade seemed an appropriate subject, while giving me the freedom to create something a little disturbing at the same time.

Later on I expanded the idea into two much larger pictures called 'Masquerade 1: Being Monsters' and 'Masquerade 2: Being People' - 'being monsters' was a simple concept just like the pictures above, where the party-goers have grotesque masks, but then I thought a counterpart was needed, because maybe monsters have fancy-dress parties as well, and like to go dressed as people... anyway, you click the titles (or the thumbnail) to see those paintings)

Prints & Original Artwork

You can now buy prints of my work (and a few originals) in my Etsy Shop. If you would prefer to buy direct from me, or you cannot find what you are looking for in the shop, feel free to email me instead: If you are interested in original artwork, I do intend to post a list of currently available artworks in due course, but I'm in the process of moving and re-building a main website, so for the meantime please also email me for more information on originals, and also commissions.
