Painting was one of the subjects I studied for 2 years at Canterbury College, Kent whilst training to be a teacher. Oils were the available medium. I had used oil paints when at school as part of an Art & Architecture A level.
There followed many wonderful years of family and teaching; art and painting were not in the loop.
In 2010 I started oil painting with relish and at every opportunity I have a paint brush in my hand. Inspiration comes from a wide range of sources and I'm continually exploring content, size, technique and style. Working in oils, soon became important to me. I love the way paint moves and mixes on the canvas; the way the subject evolves and how the colours can be vibrant and intense or delicate and sensitive; the way emotions and beliefs can be expressed on canvas. And although I dabble with watercolours oils are my great love.
