I painted ‘Becoming Nobody’ and ‘Astral Storylines’ whilst listening to Ram Dass, (an American spiritual teacher, psychologist, and author); he talk about these subjects and they conjure up beautiful images for me.
I used a mixture of transparent layers of paint and varnish on the figure, with thick opaque paint on the surroundings which gives the skin a luminous effect.

Kerry Darlington at home by the fire

A portrait that could easily have come from another era, Astral Storylines transcends time. A compelling profile with eyes illuminated with the palest blue, the composition hints at the inner soul and alternate plains of existence. A striking palette of smoke grey and radiant auburn, stunning details emerge beneath her tresses; a castle familiar from fairy tales is sketched upon her dress. Dreamlike in quality, this remarkable painting is both thought-provoking as well as beautiful. A bewitching duo, Astral Storylines is the companion work to Becoming Nobody which is another extraordinary portrait.

With delicacy and technical excellence rarely witnessed, the companion pair of original works Becoming Nobody and Astral Storylines offer the viewer an experience of extraordinary quality. Developing her technique for almost two decades, collectors can enjoy the effect of many layers of delicate acrylic paint and matte resin finish to conjure the illusion of soft smoke and a gentle breeze on the wind.
