December Feature Artist
I have been making art for as long as I can remember (do you remember paint-by-number, Spiro-graph, Sparkle and Presto Paints?) and an artist was the only thing I wanted to be when I 'grew up”. (I took a very long detour). I have taught stained glass, had a successful art doll business (design, sewing, fibre manipulation, beading, dyeing, and painting), designed and made unique art quilts, taught workshops, and I paint…a lot...and I love to travel. Travel includes long distance walks and I have walked Wainwright's Coast to Coast Path across England, the West Highland Way in Scotland, and the Cotswold Way in England (solo).
About my art...
While I paint mostly in oil, I also work in acrylic, cold wax, and mixed media. I do pet portraits, human portraits, landscapes, still life, and just 'stuff' that pleases me…and, hopefully, others. As for my style… realism, to abstract, to “interpretive representation”. Needless to say, I LOVE colour.
