Artist Statement

I've now entered my third phase of being an artist - after years of teaching Art, then practicing as an Art Therapist - I now concentrate on soul stuff.
I share and show paintings, wherever possible, with Peak District Artisans in Exhibition Spaces, Churches, Retreat Centres, our local Pub/Cafe - places where people can take time to reflect and respond.
I move through phases of using different genres, at present gouache on canvas is my choice; it's a medium which allows fluidity, transparencey or opacity, erasure and coalescence.
Work shown during Open Studios will also include watercolours, acrylics, oils, drawing media and textiles.  The theme will be "All Creation waits ...."
At present my home studio space is very limited; therefore I'm showing work and being present at two local village venues to which I hold deep commitments and feel 'at home'.  I look forward to seeing you there.
