My painting skills have been dusted off in recent years after many years of neglect. I have rediscovered my love of colour, light and texture and enjoy working in both acrylic and oils with a developing use of mixed media. I am drawn to paint unexpected beauty in and around my home town of Coventry. I work from photos taken in situ and then initially develop my ideas into a sketch format before putting brush to canvas. I find the process of painting is often one of discovery as I work to evoke an atmosphere that will draw the eye and engage the viewer. My chosen format is a loose, expressive style. Some of my recent work is now exhibited as part of the Courtyard Gallery at Stratford Garden Centre, where prints and cards are also on sale.
I hope to take part in Warwickshire Open Studios 2021
