I have been delighted to have been able to exhibit at both Kimpton and Ayot St Lawrence Art Fair, and at this year's Big Art Fair in Hitchin. But now it’s that time of year again, when artists all over Hertfordshire open their studios, or come together in local venues, to share and show their work to the public.
As last year, I will be opening my homebased studio as part of this month-long event, and, weather permitting, I will be exhibiting work in our courtyard garden, as well as in my studio.
In addition, I have had a studio clear out this year, and will be offering older work that hasn’t found a home yet, at greatly reduced prices. So I am hoping, if you are interested in buying original art work, in these times of financial challenge there will something that suits everyone’s budget. But if not, please just come and browse anyway, and have a cup of tea and a chat!
Everyone is welcome.
I am a painter working mostly in acrylics and inks, on canvas or board, as well as collage work and smaller works on paper. My work is an emotional and contemplative response to landscape, treading the boundary between a representational structure and abstraction.
Often incorporating collage and texture, my work is primarily process driven, initially responding to what is happening on the working surface, allowing a semblance of landscape to emerge out of successive layers of loose paint, partially revealing, partially obscuring what came before. A painting might go through several iterations before it reaches final completion.
I have regularly exhibited and sold work through galleries, exhibitions, and art fairs, in Hertfordshire, the Eastern Region and London.
I have been a practicing artist since graduating with First Class Honours in Fine Art from the University of Bedfordshire in 2010, after which I was fortunate to secure a 5 year Fellowship with Digswell Arts.
I currently work out of a studio at my home in Wheathampstead.
