2020 has certainly been a different year for most artists as most exhibitions have been postponed, or cancelled. I was pleased to be selected for the Hertfordshire University Open, which was due to be shown in April, but for obvious reasons the exhibition went virtual. However, there is always a positive side to a situation, and for me it allowed me time to assess what I was doing and the way in which I was working and move in a different direction. So I am still experimenting and looking forward to a positive outcome of the work produced.

I have been running art classes socially distancing, in six weekly sessions throughout July - September.
My paintings, based on the two elements of earth and water, are an exploration of the landscape and sea in a semi-abstract form.
For me, painting is not only about an exploration of the landscape and sea in a semi-abstract form, but a direct emotional and visual response, and how I may elicit that very personal response through my artwork. Mark making and layers are strong characteristics in my work, as they record the textures and traces of the landscape thus forming its own history. For me it becomes a human experience, rather than its material presence.
