Homage to – Menna Gallie


‘Homage to Menna Gallie’ is finally completed. I started painting this piece on the 20th  January 2017 – The day of Donald Trumps inauguration.


Since then it has generated influence through various forms of artistic medium and social commentary.IMG_0716

And now finally finished today 29th March. Inspired by my  muse Menna Galllie, a Welsh female Novelist who was born in Ystradgynlais (1919 – 1990).

Menna Gallie’s last two books have delighted us with her special vein of humorous writing ”She is that rare, the genuine British woman humorous novelist,” wrote the New Chronicle of her second book, Man’s Desiring; and when her last novel, Travels with a Duchess, was published, the Daily Mail wrote, ”a really funny women……..even husbands will enjoy.”
