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

I enjoy most mediums, although I'm most comfortable with soft pastels and pastel pencils and I enjoy painting in oil and acrylic.
Recently I've been doing more mixed media work, combining mono print and collage with paint and pastels. The process is unpredictable, which makes it exciting.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

After turning down a place on an art foundation course when I was 18 - which I've always regretted - coming back to it in my 40s opened up a whole new world of creativity. I want to keep developing and growing, which means being open to new experiences and ways of working!

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

My style is impressionist, and I love to paint places I've visited and people that interest me - subjects I have a personal connection with.

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

I paint purely for myself, although I love to share my work and hope others love it enough to purchase the odd piece! - and I don't have the patience to teach!
I enjoy studying art history and attending (rather than running) workshops, which provide opportunities for learning from and sharing ideas with other artists.

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

My journey as an artist began when I attended a Worcestershire Adult Education Beginners Painting and Drawing Course in September 2010. I had an inspirational tutor, Marie-Lise Chilcott, so I carried on with her Improvers Course. Over the years I've been a member of Hagley Art Club, Avoncroft Art Society (near Bromsgrove) and Tenbury and District Art Club, and I'm currently a member of Ludlow Art Society and the Ludlow Friday Group.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

h.Art in 2019, 2021, 2022 and 2023; Ludlow Art Society Spring Exhibition in 2022, 2023 and 2024; Ludlow Friday Group Exhibition at the Mascall Centre in December 2022 and 2023.

Your gallery outlets/stockists: 

I'm not an established or famous professional - so this bit is irrelevant - although people are always welcome to visit my studio/craft room at home.
