Oil on canvas 28 x 26in (71 x 66 x 2cm)

The starling is a spectacularly beautiful creature, its iridescent feathers shimmering in the light and its quiet intelligence making it a beguiling sight. Their cooperative and sociable nature within their flocks is truly wondrous to behold, creating majestic aerial murmurations that are a testament to the strong family and emotional bonds that starlings symbolise. If a flock of starlings are called a murmuration, then a solitary bird could be a murmur?

Threads of vibrant hues and undulating fabric enveloping figures are reoccurring motifs in my artwork. I strive to use colour to express the figure's innermost feelings and emotions.
