I took up painting 6 years ago as a way of relaxing and it has become one of my life's biggest joys. So far this year's Artweeks mainly features my recent still life oil paintings, a focus this year during lockdown. More recently my passion has been to paint loose oil portraits, trying to capture character and personality. I also love painting landscapes inspired by the English countryside as well as Provence where I continue to spend cherished happy times with family and friends.
As spring begins to bring joy and colour and a new sense of freedom I hope to add some of these paintings to the exhibition.
In June I will be featuring more of my work and that of other local artists at the annual Artists in the Countryside weekend in Newton Purcell
