Resin pieces are created on wood panels and boards. Each piece is handmade and unique. Instead of paint I use pigments, gold leaf and resins. The resin reacts as it cures, changing and moving on the surface. The result is quite unpredictable but makes each piece completely unique. Once fully dry the finish is rather like enamel. The process is complex and it can take several weeks to complete depending on the size.
I can use a favourite pet or animal as the inspiration for the piece, although with such an unpredictable process a likeness can't be guaranteed. Sometimes I work directly on the panel and sometimes I cut out shapes and work on those so they sit above the panel and add shadows to the piece.Framing
You can take the painting to your own framer for framing or I can do the framing for you, working with my local framer. And of course you can have paintings that don't need to be framed at all.
