Last year I started a new series of paintings about mothers and their babies. This is a painting of my friend Katerina, who was nearing the end of her pregnancy and had had the baby before I managed to finish it! The Moroccan tile pattern represents the energy and potential of the unborn child. I wanted to show her in a meditative pose- very grounded and centred.

Now I am preparing to paint Kat as a mother with her baby, so watch this space...
