Stained Glass Inspired paintings and illustrations
July Open Studios
Having worked in The Stained Glass Museum in Ely Cathedral for the past six years my influences are many and varied; from the brilliant colours and patterns of the medieval glass artists to the elegant forms and decorative motifs of the Pre-Raphaelites. Twentieth century glass artists using microscopic images of cells and micro-organisms reveal a huge variety of structures and patterns as do the natural forms of leaves and flowers I see on my daily walks along the river Ouse.
My love of dogs and their quirky characters has led me to take commissions for pets drawn in a modern, fresh style using soft pastels.
I have a BA Hons in Fine Art and continue to learn new techniques by attending life drawing classes and more recently a pottery evening class run by a fellow COS member.
