I did this painting of my daughter’s cat ‘Kaspar’ as a gift for her and her family for Christmas 2011.

‘Kaspar’ – pastel

‘Window on Macular Degeneration’ – pastel and ink

I painted this picture for an art exhibition at the Menier Gallery in London which was put on by the national Macular Society this year. It relates to one of the first signs of macular degeneration which is distortion of vision and many people may recognise the reflection of what was the Cecil cinema in Hull which is now a bingo hall.
