I am drawn to expressing places I have visited and things I have seen 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.
