    Artist Open Studios in the South East and South West

    I will be showing in the Dulwich Artists’ Open House once again this year. The event takes place over two weekends in May: 11th – 12th and 18th – 19th. If you are in London do pop by, I would love to meet you. I exhibit in my daughter Poppy’s home, so it’s always a lovely place to spend the weekend. Also from the 24th – 27th May, I will be opening my home in Totnes for the Totnes & Dartington Open Studios.

    I work exclusively with oil paints and I love this material so much. The jewel-like quality really captures the magic and romance of wildflowers. They also allow me to build a mesmerising depth in my paintings - layers upon layers of oil paints mixed with inks, glosses, fine glitter and gold leaf combine to create a gorgeous textured finish.

    My Work Space

    My Work Space

    I always work outside, so lacy ice and howling gales have as much influence on the final painting as scorching sunshine and gentle breezes. The weather in a very direct way dictates how and where the paint falls. The creation of the piece is a very physically demanding process that requires my all. The initial marks evolve from an energetic dance around the canvas and the process is full of raw emotion and passion.

    Spontaneous and instinctively my paintings demand risk, courage and a weaving of magic out of what emerges. Surrendering to the canvas I touch the place where mystery lies.

    In the early stages of an image I throw, rub, dribble and pour rich stains onto linen responding to internal and external landscapes as they unfold themselves. However, in the final piece there is also a quiet calm and peacefulness present in each image. A place for the soul to rest. A place for dreams to unfold.
