David as Dali – a Weekend in Barcelona series
This portrait of the artist’s husband was inspired by a recent visit to Barcelona to celebrate his birthday. A cardboard cutout of Salvador Dali holding 2 fish, a snapshot of the David , some Gaudi tiles and a Grimsby Cod and Haddock combine to form the slightly surreal composition.

From Grimsby to Gracia – a Weekend in Barcelona series
Inspired by a recent visit to Barcelona, this self portrait references a cardboard cutout of Dali seen outside the Dali Museum , the Gaudi mosaics and tiles in Parc Guell, a colourful tiled floor from a neighbourhood bar and a fish from the artist’s hometown of Grimsby.
