All my "Fruits" at Barewall Galery , Burslem, Stoke on Trent (https://www.barewall.co.uk/)

I want to highlight the Heritage, rich in its History, its Arts, that which Men and Women have taken care to carry at arm's length: sculptors, cabinetmakers, painters, architects ... All have contributed to creating majestic monuments, whose symbolism goes beyond simple aesthetics.
I work on other themes: irises, marbles, and clothes from Celtic circles. My common thread is the work of the material, with the aim of creating a story between the work and the viewer. I want, through my paintings, to highlight the beauty of our heritage, and allow lovers of history to maintain the memory of our common memories, during vacations and travels.
