Jungle Boy

Gertie Young RWS | Acrylic Gouache, Collage, Sweet Papers | 8.5 x 6 inches

“Just a black cat with green eyes reclining on a small sofa.  And yet the leopard print upholstery and green leaves of the wallpaper seem to tell a different and more mysterious story of days spent in the jungle hunting and stalking and hiding….. Or perhaps that’s all he is – just someone’s innocent and lucky black cat living a suburban life?

I have painted since I was a child, spending my time making sense of the world through my paintings.  I attended Hornsey Art College and after leaving followed a number of careers – deputy registrar and business analyst among them as well as being a mother.  During this time I continued to paint and following my retirement I started to paint full-time, entering competitions and finally becoming a member and treasurer of the Royal Watercolour Society.    I live in South London and my inspiration comes from the things I see around me or when I’m walking or travelling.” Gertie Young
