Mixed Media Artist
“I am a mixed media painter working primarily in acrylics and watercolour , and my work is inspired by the sea and landscape of Sussex .
The sweep and wide horizons of the South Downs, ever changing reflections and colours as clouds race across the sky, depths and mysteries of forests and trees….these images form their own abstraction.
I aim to capture an essence or feeling of a place rather than a visual interpretation. Indeed, I prefer the viewer to find their own interpretation and meaning within the painting.
Informed by my early training in textiles , I incorporate by layering , scraping back to reveal under layers, responding to marks already made, until I am happy with the result . Indeed the end result will look quite different to those initial first layers. That is the exciting part of the process and means that each interpretation will be different”.
