Having been at Discover Gather Give 2014, 2015, and 2016 I shall be again at Discover Gather Give November 2017
I am a largely self taught artist, although I studied art for a teaching degree. I have always painted, and after a career in mental health I now paint full time. My medium is oils and I currently specialise in still life looking for the beauty in ordinary things and making them extraordinary. I am inspired by the play of light and colour on objects. A sense of calm and peacefulness is also important to me and I try to express this in my work. My etchings are inspired by my drawings and sketches of nature, my environment and objects around me.
