I'm an old bird, very happy in her studio and garden. After 40 years in education, I continue to develop my own creative path...sometimes taking a few wrong turns but finding some answers on the way. Drawing is important to me so I'm a regular sketchbook user; urban sketching and life drawing are weekly activities and I paint en plein air and in the studio. Nature is my "best friend" (I spend a lot of time "in it") which I combine with an interest in colour and rhythm. My studio will evidence how I work; plenty of sketch books around and preparatory composition planning in charcoal. My paintings are usually in oil but there are mixed media pieces in acrylic and pastel that are looser in style. You can see these on Instagram. There's an acre of garden you can wander around and plenty of places to sit...and draw, if you fancy it. Looking forward to meeting you.
