Artwork for Sue Leavett
In Memories II
Soar and Dive
West Wind at Whitstable
My work is best described as semi abstract. I respond to all manner of things around me and am quite eclectic in that sense. Recently I saw the Lapidarium in Hereford Cathedral and this inspired 'Sprag'. Quite often my work has layers of meaning, so there is an immediacy but also a subtext.
Being an artist allows me to interpret my feelings, thoughts and reflections visually. It is the way I try to make sense of some 'bigger' questions in life! It means I get great enjoyment about tying ideas together that might at first seem disparate and it also implies that there are layers of interpretation or narratives in most of my work.
I am a practising fine artist and specialise in printmaking and painting.
As well as being a practising artist, I am part of the Made in the Marches artists' cooperative. I also enjoy tutoring for Village Art Clubs in Herefordshire/Shropshire borders.
