"Serena’s studio is tucked away in London; you walk into the space and new assemblage is set up in one corner ready to be painted that day. The walls are full of notes, inspirations, postcards from exhibitions that she has visited - maybe a Goya, Eardley, or Velasquez for guidance. 

 

"She is passionate about drawing and painting, and always tries to keep her marks as free and spontaneous as possible. It is the everyday which makes Serena pick up a paintbrush. She can see a world of colour and form a narrative in the clutter of the commonplace. Serena feels a need to give what might otherwise be discarded, like a sardine head or a dead pigeon found on the pavement, an immortality in paint. It is a memento to their existence."
