Currently Ches uses acrylic, ink and gouache on either canvas or paper to create her vibrant, detailed works.

 

Her works range in size from an impressive 1.5 square metres to more delicate 30 square cm.

 

Her subject matter varies from the purely decorative, abstract, and landscapes, to figurative representations of her personal interpretation of the world and its issues.

 

Ches takes commissions and can usually accommodate size, colour and subject matter to match your decor.
