For my first exhibition with Warwickshire Open Studios I have been lucky enough to join three very talented artists at the Pig Cotes Barn near Southam. My original watercolour and acrylic paintings complement the ladies' photography, linocuts, book covers, animal portraits and funky deckchairs and textile art. Four talents in one venue.
My own paintings are inspired by whatever catches my eye and imagination. It might be the scenery on a walk or whilst on holiday or from a photograph passed to me from friends. I first started painting with watercolour and enjoy the joy of seeing the paint do its own thing. Happy mistakes can be thrilling. I am now experimenting with acrylic paints. I love the freedom acrylics give and the depth of colour which can be achieved by mixing original shades. I couldn't pigeonhole my art; I just love painting and the connection I can make when others view my work.
So come and join us for great art, country views, a cuppa and a chat.
