July Open Studios
I am currently using mixed media; collage, pastels, inks, acrylics, in my life drawing, landscapes and in abstracts. I enjoy experimenting with new materials usually working on painted papers and prepared surfaces. I prefer to work quickly and directly maintaining the life and energy which attracted me to the subject.
Originally I studied Ceramics at the Central School of Art and Design gaining a BA Hons Degree. After leaving art college I set up my own ceramic studio for some years before I decided to change career. I worked as a freelance painter and art finisher in the film industry, working on many film productions in the Creature Effects and Prosthetic Make up Departments.
Since leaving the film industry I have been able to concentrate on my own work again rediscovering my love of colour and drawing. I am a member of the Cambridge Drawing Society and the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists . This year will be my sixth Open Studios.
