WILD AT HEART STUDIO...
Here is my workplace….a timber cabin set in a wild garden where I live in rural Lincolnshire.
This is where I create my paintings. They are everywhere in this timber cabin, from tiny oil studies on paper, abstract acrylic on paper and larger canvases hanging on the walls.
I began making my art twenty years ago. A visit to a painting exhibition had inspired me.
I wanted to see what I could do myself but it was many years since my very brief encounter with art school.
A long journey lay ahead so I taught myself daily to find what I wanted to say in my work.
Initially my paintings were based on reality, making landscapes and coastal studies. At first it was watercolour, then acrylic and finally oil paint. Gradually my work became looser; bold and expressive paintings emerged and I got excited by the spontaneity and freedom that abstraction offered when making my marks.
I am a member of the Lincolnshire Artists' Society and the Nadin Group, exhibiting my paintings in the group shows. I have received four awards for my work and I currently serve on the Committee of the Lincolnshire Artists' Society.
