‘from little things big things grow’ - Paul Kelly

In 2007 I married and raised 2 step-children full time. Because of cramped living conditions, I initially painted small works on board (15 x 15 cm) so that I could put work easily on a bookshelf when the kids got home after school. Board was also less prone to accidents than canvas and that’s more about me than anyone else. I loved the delicacy of painting small, finding there is something to small works that is dense and magnetic, like being pulled into a portal and even though I paint on a large scale now, I have painted small and predominantly on board ever since as a part of every show.
