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

I enjoy most mediums - although I'm most comfortable with soft pastels, oil pastels and charcoal, and I particularly enjoy painting in oil.
I'm fascinated by places, especially ones I've visited or that have meaning for me - so my favourite subject is landscape, closely followed by drawing people and animals. I also enjoy printmaking, specially making one-off mixed media monoprints that are hand coloured with pastels.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

After turning down a place at art college when I was 18 - which I've regretted ever since - re-learning to paint and draw in my late 40s opened up a whole new world of creativity. I want to continue to develop and grow - and I'm not afraid to experiment!
I'm a member of Ludlow Art Society, and I regularly attend the Ludlow Friday Group. I also belong to the Painters Online community, which is great for sharing ideas and getting feedback from other artists.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I've been painting and drawing for 12 or 13 years - and I would describe myself as an experienced amateur. Although I take occasional commissions, I prefer 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 enjoy it enough to purchase the odd painting!
I have no desire to teach, although I really enjoy attending demos and workshops and studying and exploring art history. On the basis that you never stop learning, any opportunity to share information and tips in person or online is always welcome.

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 - and even though we've lived in different areas for some time, we're still in touch. Over the years I've been a member of Hagley Art Club, Avoncroft Art Society (near Bromsgrove) and Tenbury and District Art Club. I joined Ludlow Art Society and the Ludlow Friday Group in 2022, and I exhibit with both when the opportunity arises.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

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

Your gallery outlets/stockists: 

I'm not an established professional - so this bit is irrelevant! On my "do to" list for this year is to develop a website and learn how to use Instagram to promote my work, although people are always welcome to visit my studio/craft room at home.
