I will be exhibiting in the beautiful setting of St Mary's Church in the idyllic town or Charlbury again this year. There are four of us in the church including Anita Cooper - printing, Sue Tucker - weaving and Lee Belcher - painting. 18 artists in total to visit around the town so well worth a visit.
I love to create paintings inspired by the stunning West Oxfordshire countryside where I live and seascapes from my travels. These are usually enhanced by my vivid and creative imagination.
Following A Level, I continued to study art at Banbury, Oxfordshire and finally a degree at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in Farnham, Surrey, totalling six years of art training and many, many more years developing my style of painting.
I enjoy the experimental approach of trying out different mediums including ink, acrylic, oils, watercolour and various textures. The application of the paint is an exciting experience for me creating interesting marks such as splashes, dripping, masking, dry brushing and palette knife effects. Working in a spontaneous manner, I relish in the excitement of the unpredictable nature of the media I combine. In fact, ‘happy accidents’ are a fundamental part of my practise and lead to each piece having its own individuality.
