I am drawn to expressing places I have visited where the light and colour interact to provide beauty – wide expansive skies, the hues of nature, reflections in water, textures and layers. I love how colour can be built up and blended from its constituents. Working with acrylic and oils enables me to create the depth and levels of colour, constantly blending and mixing the paint to produce the hue and texture needed.
With a degree in Chemistry, painting is not the obvious career choice. Through industrial chemical research of acrylic fibres I became more involved with colour chemistry and thus gained a valuable insight into how colours come together to create an exciting kaleidoscope of new colours. How the addition of the smallest amount of one dye could adjust the whole feel of the resulting colour.
I then progressively moved into more creative roles in marketing and interior design. This background in marketing has proven to be a real asset with my work as director for WOS, delivering an increasingly successful Summer Art Weeks and other WOS activities.
