 TRAVELS WITH MY MUM

The inspiration for the “Travels with my Mum” series began when I saw a striking black and white photo with a figure that really reminded me of my Mum when she had just moved to Africa in the 1950’sIt had such an emotional resonance with me, I decided to paint my own version of it in full on colour - this was “Look Up and Feel the Magic of Green".

I realised I could take my Mum anywhere I wanted to, all the places we never got to visit together, real or imagined, in paintings and so “Look Up While You Paddle Up the Blue Zambezi” and “Look Up Until You feel your Cherry Pop” followed - the series could be endless and suggestions are very welcome. As well as an homage to my Mum and all the wonderful Mums who are no longer with us the call is to “Look Up” and really see what is around us and what environments as well as people we risk losing, natural habitats, rivers you can no longer navigate and trees that may no longer blossom. 

Live and be present in those moments. 

My Mum died on Mother’s Day 32 years ago.
