How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I produce mostly abstract fluid art using acrylic paint and various tools and techniques. I find abstract art complex but interesting. It allows you to feel movement in the painting and use your imagination. It also teaches you about colour, the use of silicone and other enhancers to create different visusl effects and how paints and mediums interact.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being an abstract artist allows you to truly explore your imagination and reflect your emotions on paper, wood or canvas.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Abstract Fluid Artist primarily though I also have an interest in drawing, portraits, printmaking and photography,.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

My practice and activities allow me to expand my personal knowledge and techniques in relation to abstract art, and art in general.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

Having always had an interest in art I undertook several tutorial courses online as well as embarking on a 14-week art course with Seasons Art in 2021. The course covered: An introduction to drawing, drawing perspection and enlarging, pastels – still life and pet/favourite animal portrait, watercolours – misty mountains, colourful flowers, feathered friends, acrylics – seaside vistas, impressionistic impasto, country landscapes, followed by mounting your work: enhancing your masterpieces and finally an exhibition of your work.
I realised I had an ability and talent that has unleashed a passion that has consumed me ever since! I have become totally absorbed in art – I have attended workshops on glass fusion, printmaking (with a local artist, Helen Arthur) and life drawing workshops to expand my knowledge and learn new skills and techniques. Something I intend to continue as there is so much more to explore. My journey has only just begun.
My main interest is in abstract art, including Dutch pouring techniques and I find inspiration from my love of nature and the great outdoors being an avid gardener, nordic walker and lover of animals and birds. I love the use of bright colours (which I find particularly vibrant in acrylic paints) and allowing my imagination to take control. I use any manner of tools and implements to create my paintings - ranging from brushes, and palette knifes to a squeegee, hairdryer, defuser, marbles, balloons, candlesticks, straws, blow torch, etc to create movement. I paint on canvas and paper but intend to explore other materials too.
