To walk by the sea is a feast for the senses. To watch the ever changing light and colour, to hear the sounds and smell the salt in the air help to create the magic of living by the sea. I am lucky enough to live by the sea and the New Forest. I am drawn to an image by light, colour, atmosphere, mood and sometimes I think something intangible. Wild landscapes, seascapes, sand, seaweed, and old textured buildings, preferably abandoned by humans and taken over by nature. Every now and then I am taken by surprise by painting something totally different.
Oils are my choice of medium at the moment. I like the versatility and ability to blend oils and I love experimenting often surprising myself by not always ending up with what I intended. That is the fun of it. I have recently started using palette knife on board and experimenting with acrylic.
I have exhibited locally in The Regent Centre, Christchurch, The Red House Museum Christchurch, Forest Arts New Milton, Lymington Arts Festival and St Barbe Museum .
I belong to Milford Art Group and have exhibited in their exhibition. I also belong to The Local Art Scene based in Lymington and participate in Art in the Yard and Hampshire open studio.
