My Past

I am a contemporary painter, based in York, UK of British/Italian extraction. I trained in Fine Art at the North Wales School of Art & Design , exhibit regularly throughout Yorkshire, and have taken part in Great North Art Show at Ripon Cathedral, York Open Studios and have also exhibited with the  Society of Women Artists at the Mall Galleries in London. I am currently represented by the The Leaping Hare Gallery in Easingwold, North Yorkshire,  The Look Gallery in Helmsley, North Yorkshire,  The Blake Gallery in Haxby, York and Blossom Street Gallery, York.  I am a member of Leeds Fine Artists with whom I regularly exhibit.

My Present

I work primarily in acrylics & mixed media in a loose, semi-representational/semi-abstract style.  I enjoy capturing light and atmosphere in my work, simplifying forms and reducing areas of a picture to blocks of light.   Local landscapes and seascapes feature largely in my painting, in particular the North Yorkshire Moors and Dales and coastal scenes, and I also enjoy abstracted & atmospheric, 'edgy' still lifes often incoporating a window backdrop and geometric forms.
