Having been away from painting for many years I was moved to paint again……. to get these ideas down on a surface and although I am self-taught, I attended several courses at St Ives School of Painting (St Ives also being my favourite place in the world, and one of my inspirations).
I choose oil as my medium for its versatility, depth and lusciousness, creating gestural paintings of layers and marks with rich colour contrasts which develop as the paintings progress.
With music blaring, my paintings are intuitive and begin with not knowing what will come, but the forms and colours evolve revealing a painting, although at times that can be elusive. And so, the journey continues………
