The Kings Sutton collective were originally scheduled to exhibit back in the spring of 2020 until COVID got in the way. Now, after two year's break, we are finally together and ready to greet visitors.
The pandemic has transformed the work of many artists and I am no exception, this year I will be showing new landscapes, inspired by both local places and those further afield.
Expect abstracted forms, intuitive mark-making, soft colour palettes as well as built up texture and works of many layers. I paint in a range of sizes, from small 10" by 10" panels up to 70 cm square. Work is framed and ready to hang. I will also be showing a range of sketchbooks and preparatory work, and chatting about my process and my inspiration.
I am an abstract landscape artist and tutor living in North Oxfordshire. I graduated from Hull School of Art and Design with a degree in Fine Art in 2001 and I have been working in a variety of media ever since. Redundancy in 2017 allowed me the opportunity to go self employed and I have never regretted it. I teach both locally and throughout the country, both at The Mill Arts Centre in Banbury and Bullclough Art School in the Peak District. I am represented by Wychwood Art in Deddington and Padstow Gallery in Cornwall. In 2021 I was the recipient of the Artweeks Mary Moser Award.
