Description

I paint mosly in watercolour and acrylic and am experimenting with mixed media including textiles.  I am inspired by the natural beauty of the Isle of Wight, particularly the sea and the forest near my home and my own garden.   My painting style is impressionistic rather than realistic and also some abstract

 

 


About

I started painting at the age of 60 upon retirement.   I had never painted before - not even at school - but it was something I aspired to do once I had the time.   I started with a few informal classes and belong to three Island art clubs enjoyhing the companionship and peer feedback.

I have enjoyed and benefitted from several painting holidays in various places in the UK as well as further afield.

 I like reading, walking, Scottish country dancing and gardening but I love nothing better than a few hours spent with a paint brush in my hand.
