I am a self-taught artist who has particularly delighted in exploring my creative side throughout my life as a hobby, and even more since I have retired. Over the last 3-4 years I have been painting landscapes in, mainly, oil and cold wax medium, with a focus on wild, moorland, craggy spaces which I love. I also regularly attend the portrait group and I find drawing and painting the face fascinating, although I am still exploring how I want to do that so am often experimenting with my approach to it.
More recently I have turned to explore abstract painting as I want to paint about what I feel rather than more representationally and I really like the abstract group setting to enable this. In pursing this path, at the moment I am just loving playing around with different media and different forms of expression in my art, which has included collage in particular, after Linda's session on collage in November 2022.
I delight in the variety and range that an artistic route offers us and how art can bring people together in having fun, learning about techniques and approaches, and learning about ourselves through our artistic expression.
