I am a painter living in Suffolk. I primarily work in oils, pastels and ink.
My subject matter is almost always the female figure. The colour choices for my work is dictated by my own feelings, using colour to reveal the emotional context of the painting. My work invites the viewer to explore the psychological, physical and emotional relationships of the women I depict.
New year, New blog
Here we are in the new year and oh, it has started with a bump! Sadly, Waterfront Studios has been shut down. I have used this studio since 2016 and I have throughly enjoyed working alongside a mix of creative people. I am now in the process of packing up, trying to fit everything (including a large old plan chest) into a much smaller working space at home.
However, I have found the process of going through old work quite therapeutic. I have been looking at artwork with fresh eyes and then making the decision to keep or destroy.
It has to be done I am afraid, but I have found it freeing to discard old pieces so that I can move forward to develop further the art I am creating now.
In the words of Scarlett O’Hara ‘After all, tomorrow is another day’!
