About the Tutor:
I graduated from West Surrey College of Art and Design in the late 1970’s and went on to complete a Post Graduate Certificate in Art and Design Education in 1980. I became involved in the London animation scene and freelanced for many of the leading animation studios producing Commercials, TV idents and films, before setting up an animation company with my partner and husband Simon. After many years of producing award winning children’s animated TV series such as Wolves Witches and Giants, Grizzly Tales and Binka, I returned to my Fine Art roots and in 2007 gained an MA in Fine Art.
I have lived and worked in Devon for over 20 years and I am drawn to the remote beauty of the landscape and coast. My work is an intuitive response to this environment. Through an exploration of colour and mark making the work articulates the mood, atmosphere and energy of the subject matter and reflects on ever changing light created by the effects of the weather. The body of work I am showing is informed by the land and sea of Cornwall, Devon and Scotland. I work in oils building up layers of paint and creating different textures using a variety of tools to apply the paint. I explore and experiment with a limited palette creating a unique range of colours.
Forthcoming Shows include Brighton Open Houses in May 2015, Coast and Countryside at CIC in Taunton July 2015 and a solo Show at Tighnabruaich Gallery, Argyllshire, July 2015. Devon Open Studios, Topsham, September 2015.
I carry out monthly workshops and short courses in painting and drawing, both residential and non-residential.
