These unusual times have meant a different response to how artists share their work. Like many I am saddened not to be able to share it in person. Art for me is a tactile endeavour rich with emotion and feeling. Hopefully, you will get to experience the journey virtually as you view these works.
With the current circumstances being what they are please do contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or DM via instagram or facebook should you see anything you might like to discuss further. I do not have a selling platform but can take payment via the iZettle app.
I am fairly new to exhibiting (and Oxford) and this last year have exhibited at The Magic Cafe in Iffley, The West OX Arts New Work Exhibition and the Cumnor Craft Fair. In the fall, I hopefully will be exhibiting in the Abingdon Artists' Autumn Art Exhibition.
I wish you all good health and safety and hope you enjoy the virtual festival!
I am primarily self taught and have previously opted for private commissions as I juggled motherhood and a role at an Insight specialist in the financial sector. With a masters in Economics and a long standing career, art previously was an interest supported by specialist courses at Central St Martin’s that generated a side income. In the last year I have decided to make it my full time career.
When I paint my aim is to bring coherence to a complex and multifaceted world where we have many hats. My work is primarily influenced by nature, spirituality, Islamic geometry, psychotherapy, and it’s about bridging all the different parts of myself and the roles I play until what is left is whole-istic. I work in many mediums – acrylics, watercolours and oils. I also paint ceramics and furniture. I believe every object has a core of beauty that is looking to be realised thus purchase ceramics and furniture from charity shops and give them a new lease of life. I’m interested in the notion of perfection and imperfection and am drawn to the relationship between patterns – maybe a reflection of the complexity of life and how all things coexist within us, and make sense.
