Our exhibitions change every month:
My paintings are about the seasonal changing marks on the landscape and make personal links with place and memory. I am lucky enough to have lived and worked in Egypt and Spain and some of my favourite places I have visited include Sri Lanka and Morocco.
The paintings are largely mixed media – I enjoy exploring textures and using found objects. I love the stories in old, weathered surfaces on wood, metal and stone and hope my paintings work in a similar way.
I paint in oils. I love vibrant colours. The exhibition will cover 25 years of my paintings from when I started my diploma course at Jacob Kramer college (now Leeds College of Art).
My paintings are inspired by my travels, my interest in the Middle East, literature and popular sayings. I started off painting in series of seven. My late mother is commemorated in the “Seven ages of Mary”, Age number 2 depicts her school at Worthing and World War 1.
I have exhibited widely in solo and joint shows. Many of my pictures are in private collections and four were bought by Public Arts in 2003.
