At last, some food for thought…..


This started it’s life as a photo of a bowl of raspberry coulis, with some sort of biscuit draped artistically across it. I have simplfied the image and “abstracted” a slightly different shape for the coulis. I was actually more interested in the way the yellow looked on top of the red and the shapes of the two different colour areas. I nver usually work from photos so this series of prints was a bit of a challenge – but the process has helped me understand more about shape and texture, I think.

This was the first print in the Plat du Jour series and I think it is still my favourite. Like all six prints in the series it evolved from a photograph of food taken by my friend Greg Orr, who must have travelled all over the world seeking out the most sublime meals. This print began as a photo of ice cream with a chocolate sauce although the colours and shapes developed into something far more abstract than the original, of course.. The pale pink took ages to “find” because I wanted something not too “girly” and I love the way it looks on top of the velvety chocolatey red. They definitely look good enough to eat!

I am an artist - I am a printmaker and I make abstract etchings. I live in a small village in south west France that is surrounded by miles of varied and colourful landscape ..... which is fortunate because my prints are inspired by the colours and patterns in that landscape.
