I have studied and drawn images from the natural world since I was a child and currently work on a variety of wildlife subjects, animals, country scenes and hounds, mostly in pastel. I have exhibited locally, including at the Stourhead Gallery, and in London with the Equestrian Artists Society and with Sarah Coward at major equestrian events since 2000.
My initial commissions were for scraperboard work (1967-72). As my strengths were in drawing, I needed the challenge of working in colour. I am still struggling but have been able to experiment with water, acrylics, pastels and air brush. Oils are too slow for me!
I have exhibited regularly in Sherborne for many years, also at the Bath & West Show for the last two years and at the Bruton Art Society, as well as several local exhibitions and Yeovil Hospital.
My best opportunity came when the Hellenic Centre in Marylebone, London invited me to have a free, solo, month-long exhibition in their large hall. This required a minimum of 80 framed works. I included some of my Pyrography/Fretwork pieces.
I continue to battle with styles in colour because having lived my first 21 years in Cyprus, colour has influenced my whole life.
Movement (dance in particular) ruled many of my earlier years, so painting dancers has been a new challenge.
Come along to the art sale and let me have your honest opinions on what I should concentrate on!
My watercolours reflect my passionate love of nature in its many forms. Colour is a therapy, a tonic to drink in freely, and painting it all is SO exciting - ever challenging. Nature always gets the better of me.
