150 Limited Edition giclee fine art prints available 15"x20" 


Paper Aeroplanes was an image that appeared to me during a session of therapy at the Anxiety Disorders Residential Unit,  the Bethlem Royal Hospital (Bedlam).

The movement in the painting comes in the form of paper aeroplanes which depict five painful emotions of sadness, anger, shame, guilt and anxiety, trying to rest and be accepted within a compassionate landscape.   I have sincerely tried to emotionally feel the paper aeroplanes landing, yet to date the process is met with overwhelming hot gusts of the five painful emotions which act together to give the paper aeroplanes lift so they remain in perpetual motion.  Although they haven't landed yet my motivation and commitment offers them courage to do so.

Green is the colour of compassion and hence the colour of the landscape.  The lotus flower suggests the balance of mind, body, spirit and the potential for compassionate rebirth.  A flower of such beauty which blossoms from the mud resonates with my own struggle through trauma whilst striving to write a different ending to the one within which I currently sit.   The 28 tiles of the runway and moon halo around the lotus acknowledges the lunar cycle and regulation of emotions.   The number 44 at the base of the runway is simply my age when I painted the painting and is a nod toward compass bearings you see on all runways.  

The window represents my eyes, as eyes to my soul where this scene takes place.
