As an expressive painter of sea, sky and landscape, I love trying to capture atmospheric changes and shifts in weather, especially on wilder days. My main inspiration is the coast around St. Ives, Cornwall, where I spend a lot of time. This year I am also showing paintings inspired by a trip to Norway. I found the scale of the mountains and fjords breathtaking, and have enjoyed exploring this visually. I mostly paint in acrylic as well as some oil and mixed media, and will have original paintings, prints and cards available.
For my day job I work as an Arts Psychotherapist, so am fascinated by the creative process and how things often 'just emerge' in my work with individuals - and in my painting. I find it's important to 'trust the process', which feels both scary and exhilarating.
I am exhibiting at my home with printmaker Karen Stephenson, and guest ceramicist Iris Eisenhart, part of Future Rabbit Collective. We look forward to welcoming you. www.mariecalvert.co.uk
