Depth explorations into Still Life, Land/Riverscapes and Meditations through mixed media; displayed in my Studio, Village Community Pub/Cafe and Church.

Recent work explores: interior world of fruit and veg, and exterior world surrounding the River Derwent. Also meditational paintings in church opposite my studio

I paint to make visible those awesome moments when Heaven touches Earth. That primary/primal Creator/Creation relationship inspires and imbues my painting whether I’m working on a meditational theme or with my recent exploration unto the inner world of fruit and veg. The experience of each new adventure informs my choice of media and of where best to show and display work.

I’m excited by the idea of meeting people during Open Studio when I will be sketching them, then creating a collage piece.

As both Artist and Art Therapist I am continually aware of my process of working with interior nuances, then of standing back and viewing the whole. The process is all about making relationships between subject, composition, media, form, colour and mark making: each must continue to hold its own integrity within total integration until the painting itself says “YES”
