Alongside continuing work with Ballet Cymru, I’m currently painting a series of pictures for Well Thumbed, a theatrical celebration of innuendo and sexual subtext in great literature, created and performed by Terry Victor (whom I painted in 2013 as part of my Performers series).
Terry invited me to produce images to be exhibited alongside performances – portraits of writers who feature in the show, made with reference to historical photographs, paintings, sculptures, etc, or from the imagination. I thought this was an intriguing proposition, involving a very unfamiliar approach to painting, so I’m giving it a go.
Pictures will be shown at a number of performances in Wales and England in July this year, and then during the show’s run at the Edinburgh Festival throughout August.

Thanks to Terry for the opportunity.
