July Open Studios
After taking early retirement I relocated to southern Spain, in the beautiful province of Murcia. Here one can experience all of the seasons in one day! Snow on the mountains in the early morning , flowers in the garden at coffee time, sun on the sea at midday and later in the cooler evenings the log fire was needed
Light and colour are the most important influences on my art.Travelling across Spain with its huge landscapes, each province completely different in its terrain, light and colours provided a myriad of subjects. The terracotta colours of Cuenca, the White windmills in Toledo against turquoise skies, the sunlight and shadows of the ancient cities!
After ten years I have returned to East Anglia to live. Now I have the inspiration of giant fenland skies reflected in the water ways. An entirely different light and set of colours!
I primarily use watercolour and mixed media in my work. I also enjoy the vibrant clear colours of pastel. Currently I am enjoying working on larger canvases in mixed media in a looser abstracted form as well as a series of smaller watercolour based abstracted landscapes.
I am a member of Ely Art lovers Workshop. I exhibit in the Babylon gallery and in the Ely Art Society summer Exhibition. My work can be found in the Cathedral refectory alongside my colleaagues in Fenthhree #. Along with another member of Fenfthree I tutor a group in Wicken village. This will be my fourth year in Cambridge Open Studios along with two other local artists as Fenthree
