Abstract works inspired by natural patterns 

 

A little about my creative journey

Originally a Fine Art graduate & art teacher, I continued to work intermittently as a figurative painter, but it was only many years later when I stumbled into the world of abstract art, that I found a strong sense of personal direction and began to produce a steady flow of work.

 

In 2009, by chance, I began painting gouache studies of patterns from pebbles.

This interest in pebbles turned unexpectedly into an abstract adventure!  

Surprises followed - unconscious emotions sneaked in the back door 

 - people viewing my work saw themes & images I had not intended

- at a time of stress I found a therapeutic outlet. 

I became hooked on the freedom of abstract work & as the pictures became bolder & more freely interpreted I went back to using oils - my original medium. I began to explore non-figurative approaches more widely, using observation of found patterns, from pebbles, as a starting point only.

10 years on and I have just completed a year of further study at the Newlyn School of Art. The course inspired me to diversify my methods and materials, and to learn more about abstract art. I am now working in a range of different media, with increased curiosity - I feel like a child in a huge sweet shop!
