Biography

Whilst looking after my beloved husband,I was encourage by our Marie Currie nurse to take up a hobby such as art. I found a local class and found solace ,new friends and supportive.My husband became my mission as he look forward to my return to see my work.However January 2022 he sadly pass away and never picked up a brush again ,I tried but too painful .One day eighteen years later a dear friend ask if I would accompany her to join art a class ,and to my delight I found a love of painting again,Whilst I had learnt many skills over the two years I had come to a crossroads and wanting to develop a style of my own .So along with my friend again joined her to another class with no tutoring ,where I was able to paint freely using my intuition and expression with support from my fellow artist This time my mission was for me

inspiration

My inspiration and finding a style was my dear farther and best friend.He was a sculptor and very creative.Sharing our thoughts together on art and form.In later years we shared spiritually together and beliefs of the wonders of nature with its trees ,seed pods and animals After along life 2018 my farther pass away.I had always use just watercolours but one day was given a pallet of ink .Whilst trying these out a spiritual moment occurred and felted my father's present my brush felt like it was painting for me and then a landscape appeared ,then I heard a voice in my head Trees set the Scene so hence painted two trees like I had never painted before .From that day my style was formed and have now built a portfolio of paintings mostly during lockdown and now on a journey to share with others

medium

My main medium are watercolours However several of my paintings I have added acrylic ink into with granulation fluid to give extra textures Also acrylic ink on its own using pallet knives ,twigs of different sizes and a water spray bottle
