Ricardo e Cristiana, Óbidos 2017

So, I am most currently residing in Lisbon (GREAT city, super creative too); and was approached by two very special people to me; to do a commission of mutual friends of ours on their wedding day…

I have of recent created quite a few works centred around weddings – I think the personal nature of commissioning something, and my style lends itself to these special days –  and so was thrilled to do something, especially of two people I know too! I believe those who commissioned it and the the special couple themselves, were all thrilled with the outcome. 😉

Based on a photo from their wedding photography, taken in Óbidos, Portugal. May it bring you many years of joy, and may you have many happy years of matrimony! Enjoy Ricardo e Cristiana!

Rua Sao Vicente, Mina Gerais, Brazil

In a recent flurry of work/ private commissions (isn’t it always the way…) I was asked to create this home in Minas Gerais, a particularly poignant home for my client as it was where she grew up. I know the client personally, and knew the sentimental importance of the piece, so despite it being a simple building and a smaller piece, it took some time and thought. I thoroughly enjoyed giving the building it’s character, through my usual use of colour if in somewhat random way!

I was also asked to portray her parents in the piece from photos she supplied me with, which again gave it it’s personal touch – and proved trickier than said, given as resemblance is key on such small figures they required less mad dash brush stroke and  a steadier hand!

Take a look, I believe the client was very pleased ;)!

Lucinda Burman at The Gallery Upstairs…

So, below are four works I will be exhibiting at The Gallery Upstairs in Henley in Arden, (incidentally a gallery I worked in when I was younger as their sales girl). The work is based around the area, and has also been used in the publication for the show, so have a look! The private view is on the 18th May but the show will be running until 7th June!

Selection for the Royal Birmingham Society of Arts… Birmingham Today exhibition..

So, I applied and much to my pleasure (so those who know me better may even say, ‘I’m very JOLLY’) was selected amongst a huge number of applicants to be a part of the ‘Birmingham Today’ exhibition at the RBSA, the Royal Birmingham Society of Arts near St. Pauls; so to all those I know from that neck of the woods if you would like to see my work and a great exhibition celebrating the second city go along! It has been on for a few weeks and finishes on the 1st March… take a look…

Egyptian Tanoura Dancers….

Happy New Year to everyone, this was penultimate private commission of a fantastic 2013! Some very lovely clients from Egypt asked me to recreate imagery of the infamous ‘Tanoura dancers’ which I think was a great success as my style lends itself to imagery full of energy and movement… so take a look!
