I’m a bit of a “dabbling” artist as I like to try all kinds of media ... watercolour, acrylic, lino printing and mixed media.
I first started keeping watercolour sketch books when we were travelling around mainland Europe in our Dutch barge as a record of our travels. Moving on everyday it was a way of keeping some visual memories. I love landscape .. not necessarily representational but focused on colour and shape so I am lucky to have settled in Suffolk with our wonderful light and ever changing estuaries.
Recently I have moved from watercolour sketches to working in acrylic and I’m loving the freedom it gives me to paint over my mistakes! I’d like to create more abstract paintings as a way of capturing the sense of a place rather than its reality and eventually graduate to pure abstraction with its emphasis on shape, colour and composition
