For me, art is all about connection: connection with my environment as I sketch or paint outside, connection with the materials I use in the studio to develop a painting, and connection with those who look at my work as I seek to share the excitement and capture the mood of what has given me inspiration.
I love to explore different media: pen and wash, watercolour, acrylic, mixed media, and most recently oils. I have developed my work through classes at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal and workshops in southern Spain, Venice and Crete, as well as more locally.
I am a member of Green Door Artists in Kendal (greendoor.org.uk) and have exhibited with them since 2014 at venues across Kendal and the Lake District. I now live near Carlisle and so being a member of EVAN as well as Green Door enables me to connect with my local art community and exhibit in my local area.
