******NORTH YORKSHIRE ARTISTS EXHIBITION 2020 IS NOW CANCELLED. NOW RE SCHEDULED FOR EASTER 2021 - SEE 2020 NEW WORKS in my gallery *****
N Y ARTISTS EASTER EXHIBITION at Easter 2019 was a huge success and over £380 was raised for St Catherine's Hospice.
Allotment Studio is now in full use and the second OPEN weekend has been very successful. This is my studio overlooking the allotments, giving me lots of inspiration! I will have other open weekends in future. Private viewings can be organised also - contact through this website.
I now have a range of over 50 greetings cards, which have been printed from my quirky paintings - these are always available from my studio. NOT AVAILABLE COMMERCIALLY!
I hope you will enjoy looking at some of my original art work through my gallery - each painting is a result of my own artistic journey and the many influences that we all experience.
I have had the opportunity to paint in Italy a couple of times and love the light, architecture and atmosphere.
I work mainly in acrylics and mixed media to produce interpretations of various themes. My work tends to evolve in categories, for example the music series, sea and landscapes - all are interpretations in which I hope to create atmosphere, colourful observations and imaginative interpretations. I also paint the very popular quirky paintings from outdoor painting sessions.
I exhibit widely and private commissions are held in the USA, Spain, Australia and Canada as well as collections in the U.K.
I have regularly shown work at The British Society of Painters Exhibition where I have won The Yorkshire Television award and also been placed in the top ten.
I have previously won the Art Club Painting Challenge Day and was voted the favourite painting in the recent Exhibition. I have previously been the Chair and Exhibition Organiser for the Vale of Pickering Art Club.
At the recent 200th York Art Society Art Exhibition, held in the City, I was noted by the Selectors 'Great fun, full of succinct, characterful observations and a great sense of place'.
I have had my first solo Exhibition - 'Past and Present' and have an Exhibition each Easter.
I visit many coastal venues, as well as old favourites during my outdoor painting season! Examples will appear in my GALLERY.
