My childhood was based in the West Country with early childhood holidays in Cornwall & Devon. Latterly time has been spent sailing with my family on the South Coast so I am inspired by sea, coast and land forms and my work has concentrated more on these themes.
At Emily Ball at Seawhite Studio I have enjoyed the study themes about the everyday arrangement of objects, the natural body, and landscape. I am being stretched to consider looking up, over, inside and through other subjects moving or static, natural or manmade, using mixed media, different papers and textures, working from large to small scale.
I have now been introduced into the world of oil painting and by using my foundations of drawing with mixed media I now want to translate this into this new and sometimes daunting experience!
