Celtic Art

Many moons ago, I saw a page from the Lindisfarne Gospels. My immediate reaction was "Wow! How did they do that?", closely followed by "Hmmmm, how do I do something like that?".

My earliest attempts were abysmal. Naturally, these are the ones that my mum chose to cherish.

After much trial, and even more error, I discovered the Princes School of Traditional Arts in East London and embarked upon their MA.

The paintings in this gallery are those that I have done using the skills, knowledge and, perhaps, expertise gained during my time at the PSTA.

The most popular works are the gilded circle paintings. I have had comments from those who have bought them that it is like the sun is in your room, on your wall, shining away all year round.
