I am a committed and passionate artist producing artwork on a daily basis. I am a portrait, landscape and still life artist, dedicated to expressing my direct response to my immediate surroundings and experiences. I commit myself to using focused energy translating and capturing colour and light. I am also passionate about healthy nutrition and reflect this in my art and painting.
I love to indulge in paintings with oils, acrylics, watercolour and pen and ink. As an artist I am an observer always questioning, analysing, responding and finding connections and contrasts between the Universal language of art and the life I see. At the moment I am painting regularly from still life and photographs and am also exploring an intuitive approach using no subject matter.
I teach painting and drawing weekly in my home based studio. I also run workshops in Alla Prima Painting and also in creative awareness with Dr Ira Van der Steenstraten. (Breeze Lifecoaching).
In the last 12 months I have received 1st prize and a highly commended in still life, a 2nd prize in the environment at the Sommerset Art Awards. I have tutored a number of people in drawing and painting over a number of years. I love teaching/guiding adults and children, concentrating on fundamental Principles which apply to all art practices whilst encouraging their own interpretations. I am passionate about the language of art.
