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.

The small coppiced wood chair was made in 2002 from hazel and apple grown in the wild garden.

 

 

Paintings in my workspace...

My studio has space for finished paintings to hang on the walls.  I like to have them around me when I work.  They can be a source of inspiration for a new piece especially if I am working in a series.

They are everywhere in this timber cabin.

The cabin is L-shaped.   The little kitchen area is round to the left...

 

In the kitchen area... I make use of all the wall space and hanging panels to display my work.

Some of the tools I use for oil painting.

These folding buffet tables are ideal work tops.  I also work on the floor so I can work easily.  Some paintings are quite physical.

My tables and some equipment for making the acrylic paintings on paper.  Some A4 pieces are drying in the rack before continuing.

Below are some canvases resting and work on Arches oil paper drying on the table.

These small works can be mounted and framed or used as greetings cards.
