Hastings Open 2020 Preselection

I am pleased to announce that two of my paintings have been shortlisted for the Hastings Open 2020.


A mother and her children walk into the distance on the road to nowhere over the sea.

We call them refugees. They have no where to go but are expected to get there. We don’t know where nowhere is and neither does she. But this beautiful young mother will walk on water to keep her children safe. Find them refuge and food.
She knows no bounds because she has no choices.

We watch her go, not our business, not our problem.

Will the children be able to breathe
When all the trees are gone 
By Stephanie Fuller

My artwork has always been about the environment and bringing awareness about the world we are loosing.

Painting what is now knowing that paintings can last for hundreds of years and what is now won’t be what is in several generations.

I feel there is more urgency to my message and that I need to be less subtle about the beauty of what we have around us now.

It seems incredible now but I finished this painting over two months before the bushfires in Australia wiped out over one billion animals and 27 million acres of forest.

This wasn't a planned painting it just happened.
