July Open Studios
I took up painting after completing an Art History degree. I aim to convey atmosphere and emotion. Also to capture light - which was dazzling in Argentina, where I lived for many years - but is more subtle and precious in this country. I have found oil is the best medium for me, though I also work in acrylic, watercolours and mixed media when the subject calls for them. As well as figurative painting, I am exploring a more abstract approach to my subjects. I find much inspiration in Cambridge and its countryside, as well as Norfolk, Suffolk, Cornwall, Ireland and Italy, and I enjoy the challenge of new places and methods of expression.
I am a member of the Cambridge Drawing Society and show my work at their two annual exhibitions.
