I started my artistic journey several years ago and since that time I have looked for opportunities to learn and practice the things that interest me. I would describe my art education as self directed and eclectic. I’ve learned a lot from other artists and have taken workshops and classes locally. I also learn from books and videos and from simply doing or ‘disappearing down the rabbit hole to art wonderland’ where one loses all track of time. Recently I have mainly painted in oils but I also work in other media.
I really enjoy painting on location with the Gallery Painting Group. I love spending the time outside in nature and observing the way living things interact with the environment. I am fascinated by the play of light and how it changes everything and it’s exciting to find that special something that speaks to your soul and says ‘paint me’. I really enjoy the camaraderie of working alongside like minded people and am grateful to all those who welcome us to their locations.
As well as the Gallery Painting Group, I am a member of other art groups in London, St. Mary's and Strathroy.
