Welcome to my studio where paintings are born, formed and resolved, battles fought, ideas become reality; where paintings suggest the next line or colour; where creativity happens.
Moorlands surrounded my beginnings in Yorkshire and also now in Derbyshire; years in London at college; Nigeria – teaching and Sheffield – teaching and Art Therapy practice added techniques and depth.
Awe at the power of Creation and Creator gives underlying strength to my painting. Studying with Frank Auerbach I became aware of his emphasis on relationship to the subject and energy given to process.
As an Art Therapist an exploration of emotional depths informs my work; whether the subject is figurative or abstract I constantly seek integration between composition and content.
During Open Days my larger meditational paintings are displayed in St John’s Church opposite my studio (parking available on church driveway) – additional open days May 27/28/29.
Come, see, talk, enjoy
