Our perspectives are all unique. Which place is woven into your life?
I am a Cotswold based artist with a lifelong passion for both inland and coastal countryside. I relocated from Cornwall to Gloucestershire in 2010 and my inspiration is firmly rooted in nature. I paint with inks, metallic mediums and acrylics creating art with a contemporary interpretation on places that people find connection with.
Within my animal series, there is a ‘map’ or ancient track-way to be found in each piece. I enjoy incorporating rivers, roads, lochs and coastline into my work, and marry the location with an animal that is linked to that area. I paint these ‘map lines’ with metallic medium. Depending on where you stand and the light of day, these lines will either be subtle or illuminated. I love this changing relationship which the viewer has with the artwork.
During 'lockdown' I found juggling home learning with my two sons dramatically reduced the time I had to paint. This led me to produce a new spontaneous body of work through mono printing, paper cutting and collage. My love of colour has found its voice through the abstract landscapes I have started to produce. I hope you enjoy exploring my work.
