I believe that art is in the eye of the beholder. I started painting around 8 years ago as a hobby, and after receiving recognition for my work at competitions, I began to take my art more seriously, studying for my City and Guilds Level 2 art qualification. Later, I completed an Art Technique distance-learning course with the National Extension College and an Open University access course in Art and the Languages.
My influences include a wide range of Impressionists, such as Monet, Manet, Cézanne, Degas and Pissarro. I also like to work in the style of Lowry. I prefer working with acrylic paint and oils rather than watercolour as I can alter the style and texture more easily.
My pagan beliefs naturally lead me to paint landscapes and seascapes. When given a theme, I like to think outside the box, such as when I had a theme of “Hope” and I created a painting of the Thai boys’ football team being rescued from a cave in northern Thailand. This was later sold at an exhibition at Steak of the Art in Bristol.
