For Oxfordshire Artweeks 2023 I will be exhibiting in 3 venues in Woodstock. Most prestigiously, at Darl-e and the Bear, which was my ambition when I started painting 2 years ago. Also, at St Mary Magdalene Church, alongside other 'Artists in Woodstock', a group that I brought together in Autumn 2022 to put Woodstock on the art map. Finally, in the windows of Woodstock. Woodstock artists, will feature in an array of windows around the town, to create a walking trail.
My exhibition encompasses art from the first 2 years of my newfound hobby. I find joy in colour, and often paint places or experiences that have brought me joy. It is the first time I've shared any of my art, in real life at least, and I can't wait to hear what people like/think/otherwise. Whilst I paint for me, I am curious to see the reaction from the outside world....
Painting is my hobby, squeezed in between corporate and family life. I am the Chief Strategy Officer of a global customer experience agency, RAPP, and bring creativity into my work everyday, so painting helps me to relax and also inspires my thinking at work.
I have always been involved in social media in my home town of Woodstock. It's such a beautiful place, and I love to photograph it, share photography, and support local businesses and events. Bringing together the Artists in Woodstock combines all of these.
