I am an abstract artist living on the North Kent coast in Whitstable. I have been painting for about twenty years and began by using art as a means of expression and a grounding tool. In 2008 l was invited to participate in the Canterbury Festival Open House art trail and have exhibited locally in various exhibitions at the Somerset Maugham Gallery at the Horsebridge. I am inspired by the emotions and experiences of everyday life. I try to capture feeling with colour and movement.
Using my own method of applying layers of paint and then scraping back, I work until the painting looks like it has reached a conclusion.
Often I start a project with an idea or respond to a situation or emotion but I can also experiment having no preconceived idea
just a spontaneous reaction to what I have applied to the canvas.
I will be permanently exhibiting at Hut 2 The Harbour Market , Whitstable Kent from October 2017
Weather permitting Thursday to Sunday Autumn times.......
Joint exhibition "Passing Places". The Horsebridge Centre , Somerset Maugham Gallery , Whitstable
