Statement

I am a self-taught artist.  I always loved being creative but only started painting when my partner and I moved into our new home.  As funds were tight and we needed some artwork to decorate our home, I decided to make my own.  After that painting became a passion for me and I am still experimenting and learning new techniques.  I am currently enjoying collage.


I paint with oil and acrylic and started off painting abstracts, just experimenting with colour and texture.  I am now painting landscapes, seascapes, still life, animals and people.  The area where I live on the North East coast of Essex provides me with plenty of inspiration.  Although the subject matter of my work is quite diverse, there is a naive theme and it has been described as sparse, calming and meditative, with an influence of the St. Ives Artists such as Alfred Wallace.


I have sold work through the Saatchi online gallery and am building a local following with regular exhibitions around Colchester, Essex.

 

Although I love Wivenhoe, there is also another place that is very special to me.  A small village named Montolieu in the South West of France, about 15 minutes drive from the historic town of Carcassonne.  My husband Neil and I spend as much time there as we can painting, writing, walking, and taking in the beautiful countryside and of course drinking the wine!  Montolieu is a quirky little village.  There are lots of book shops and art galleries and creative people around.
