When l was told l would need to write an introduction about myself to front this website l shuddered at the thought and curled up in my shell with my trumpet, but it was no good, that trumpet just needed blowing, it was time to pucker up.
So here l am tip-toeing out of my comfort zone to tell you that actually l have some really great paintings to show you and hundreds more up my artists smock. Yes l'm actually poised here with a jaunty beret and a distant gaze and attempting to be a little less self deprecating. This is probably my 14th draft of this wording so please excuse me and just understand l am much happier with a paintbrush in my hand than said trumpet.
You will see that my style varies somewhat as does my subject matter, which reflects my journey and need to experiment. Pointillism is a favourite so l am particularly interested in looking at paintings from a tonal aspect but playing with colour excites me too.
Over the years, alongside my art l have been cruise ship dancing, animating, backdrop painting, costume making, stage set building, conference/exhibition stand construction, prop making, illustrating, wallpaper designing, furniture painting, marrying and mothering.
Picking up a paintbrush is my kind of funfair. Who wants to go on the same old familiar Merry-Go-Round when you can try all the other rides? I am as happy with a graphite pencil as l am with oils , acrylics or pastels, l'm just happy if l'm creating full stop.
