During this time I returned to painting more seriously. I have attended numerous courses and workshops in and around Oxford – Brookes University, Royal Academy of Art and at the School of Painting in St Ives – exploring various techniques and processes whilst developing my own style. In 2016 I was accepted on the Intensive Development Porthmeor Programme at the School of Painting in St Ives and have exhibited with various galleries over the years.
I am striving to capture the light and essence of my subject, whether a seascape or still life, and to create a harmony and “stillness” in the finished piece. I love the possibilities of charcoal and paint and being absorbed in the creative process.
