'Umbra' means dusk in Latin. I draw in graphite powder - my umbra. What remains is a fleeting impression of the present moment. A celebratory collective image of my everyday objects that bring me happiness: my paint pots holding brushes, my brushes laid out. A pewter plate and spoon could be waiting to be painted or perhaps for my lunch! The precious mussel shell that was snuck into my hand bag by my partner Chris to remind me of our day at the beach.
