I am drawn to expressing places I have visited where the light and colour interact to provide beauty – wide expansive skies, seas and landscapes; the hues of nature; reflections in water; textures and layers. I love how colour can be built up and blended from its constituents using a palette knife and large soft brushes. I often start a piece working in acrylics and a lot of water to give a soft primary layer. I then work over this, mainly with oils, as I find they enable me to create depth and levels of colour, with constant blending and mixing of the paint to produce the hue and texture needed.
I am delighted to be exhibiting my paintings and prints alongside:
- photographer David Chantrey
- textile artist and painter Jacqui Smithson
- Alix Almond who produces linocut prints and drawings
- jeweller Victoria Noyes
This year we are also hoping to have some demonstrations during the event.
