These two pieces were painted for an exhibition in Sheffield to express what the word "gift" means around Christmas. The Toy Shop is a study into the personal act of buying a gift at Christmas as opposed to the modern trend of internet shopping. It is influenced by the painting The Hat Shop by German Expressionist Auguste Macke.

 

The Second piece The Snow Day portrays the gift of time - represented here by time spent with family as opposed to having to work due to the heavy snow.

 

Prints are available for both paintings. Please message me if you are interested.
