BIG LIVE ART
Large paintings (2 x 1.5 metres) combining layers of spontaneous movement and large visceral mark making. Created on the floor with the artist sitting in the middle of the action, in a public setting.
July Open Studios
I love painting and I love sharing what I do with others... so I LOVE Cambridge Open Studios, and really look forward to welcoming you into my home, my garden studio space and sharing my most recent work with you!
I'd describe myself as a SONG PAINTER, using paint to 'sing with colour'. Visceral, visual utterances of shape, hue and mark are my vocabulary - a whole heart, mind, body & soul thing. I love colour and movement, pattern and detail, working in layers and getting messy. I'm excited by the extravagant dimensions and intimate details that I see in creation - a joyfulness in the very act of creating and aim to reflect this in my work. My style leans towards abstract expressionism, seeking to represent and communicate things unseen, making the invisible visible. I love to encourage creativity in others. It adds dimension, taste, depth, texture and richness to life, aiding expression, taking us beyond the seen and ordinary.
I live in Arbury with my husband and 3 daughters, and work from my art studio in our garden. I have the privilege of painting live regularly at various events and a number of pieces in my exhibition are created in these settings. I will be exhibiting work on canvas and paper in a variety of sizes.
