obeche wood frame painted Farrow & Ball 'Bone'
This painting was selected by designer Nicky Haslam for his design at Holiday House London in 2018.
This is an abstract piece expressing the artist's feelings about place and family - "Dad had a boat on Loch Lomond. He spent years renovating 'Ladybird' in a huge shed on Inchmurrin Island. The day of the launch was a huge event. The boat is a metaphor for life."
