I visited Ibiza last year with friends to gather images for a group of paintings. Often the hotel and travel industry creates places of pleasure and fantasy for us to exist in and explore and I wanted to use these stage sets as backdrops for my figures and animals to exist in.


This painting is called Wishing Well. It’s a kind of pun on the idea of wishing or imagining how it would feel to co-exist in this kind of a space with an animal. Or waking partly from a dream.



‘Wishing Well’ is painted using oil and acrylic on canvas. It is a large painting on an artist’s high quality Windsor and Newton stretcher which is warp resistant.


The painting is made using large brushstrokes and the texture of the paint and brush marks are visible on the surface of the canvas. It is painted using a combination of oil and acrylic paint which gives it extreme vibrancy and shine in some areas. In some areas of the painting the oil pigment is fluorescent which gives intense strong colour.
