My inspiration for this piece comes from fishing with my son in a beautiful lake near where I live & beside the lake sits a carp pond.  The lake has such a beauty & peacefullness about it, that's why I called this piece Utopia.


I wanted to bring my background of textiles & interiors into the artwork & if you look closely into the lily pads you will see alot of design work in them. The use of pattern & repeat is what I love to use to make contemporary art. I use my own photography for my work.


Like my previous painting The Esoteric Pond I poured washes of water colour oil, over the large linen canvas, for the water to give a natural flowing effect around the fish. I worked the oils on the fish to create a 3D effect with the scales, blending the oil paints to give depth. I like to look at current colour trends & put them into my artwork, keeping my work modern, edgy but also timelessly beautiful.
