Watching images emerge on the paper is something I find captivating. This is the aspect of watercolour I find the most enthralling, and the reason I am drawn to it's freedom and flow.
July Open Studios
I grew up in South Africa, a place that still influences my painting in discernible ways. I am fascinated by pictures that capture light, and I am drawn to strong colours. Recent works have also moved towards including textures in her watercolours to emphasise mood and create a dynamic element. I occasionally works in oils or acrylics, but watercolour is currently my preferred medium.
My landscapes evoke feelings of space and often include an element of scale. Floral and abstract paintings in my portfolio have an energy which comes from their vibrant colours, and way they blends on the paper. My work is eclectic, covering a range of subjects and styles as she paints what appeals when the brush is in her hand.
In July 2013 I founded of the charity project, Running With Brushes which aims to produce and sell 1000 small watercolours in aid of Care For Casualties. The project has become a collaboration of over 30 artists since it's inception in July 2013 and to date has raised over £6000 for the charity.
My paintings are part of private collections in France, New Zealand, Portugal, South Africa, Switzerland, the United Kindom and the United States. They have been described in the Cambridgeshire Journal as being filled with ‘Joy, energy and colour’.
I am a member of the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists.
