inspired by natural patterns-plus a miscellany of other works
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 turned unexpectedly into an abstract adventure and I became hooked on the freedom of it. Over several years the pictures became bolder - more freely interpreted; I returned to oils - my original medium - and began exploring non-figurative approaches more widely, using observation of pebbles as a starting point.
In 2019 I completed a wonderful year of p/t study at the Newlyn School of Art, which inspired me to diversify my subjects, methods and materials, and to learn more about abstract art. 2 new interests also sprung from my sessions in Newlyn - printmaking and - surprisingly - portraits. The latter related to a long standing love of life drawing, which had continued alongside of my abstract practice. As 2020 proceeds I am continuing to explore these new interests alongside of new opportunities for exhibiting and sharing my work - see 'Contact' page for details.
