My Past

Bracket

I am a contemporary painter, based in York, UK. 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 and York Open Studios, and have also exhibited with the  Society of Women Artists at the Mall Galleries. I am currently represented by the Look Gallery in Helmsley, North Yorkshire,  The Blake Gallery in Haxby, York and The Leaping Hare Gallery in Easingwold, North Yorkshire.

My Present

Bracket

I work primarily in acrylics in a loose, semi-representational/ semi-abstract/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.
