About Me

Background;

Initially a Mental Health Nurse and Counsellor in the NHS, often using art with patients, I decided after years of my own painting, learning new methods, and techniques, experimenting with different media for my own art practice, that I wanted to develop and run my own workshops. Since 2014 I am a practicing artist and tutor.

What are the workshops? 

There are five "Intuitive Art-Freedom to Paint" workshops, all are built on the techniques of using acrylic paint and household items, like large paint brushes, rollers, with various mixed media and mark making items combined with a relaxed and fun approach. I demonstrate all techniques and give individual guidance in the groups so learners can develope tangible skills, to embrace a healthy "at your own pace" approach to creating that is achievable and fun. They are for beginners and more experienced artists to loosen up and try new ways of working. Please see comments page.

What else?

As well as exhibiting my work, professionally demonstrating how I work and running workshops for art groups, U3A, and private groups in Ely, Norwich, Harwich and Bungay, I work within the Arts and Well-being sector, for Mundesley Hospital until its closure, Cambridge Community Arts and Norwich Mind Waves Group.

Artist residencies; 

Every couple of years I like to travel somewhere new to push me further as an artist. Wales, Iceland and Australia  were wonderful experiences painting, with a huge variety of landscape bold but elusive mountains, deserts, seas and weather changes that enabled me to embrace a freer, chaotic, approach with a refined end result.

Now living in Norwich and although using the Norfolk Coast and surroundings for constant inspiration, I prefer to describe myself as an experimental mixed media artist to avoid being limited and pigeonholed, leaving me free.
