I create my artwork using watercolour, pastels, acrylics and oils, the subject dictates my choice. I take part in three or four exhibitions a year and take on commissions in between. . Inspiration hits me full on every time I wander the cliffs and beaches around my home, Wembury – my ‘ideas’ drawer is overflowing!
I am an amateur artist living in Devon between the sea and the moor, both are a constant source of inspiration and frequently feature in my artwork. I paint mainly in oils or acrylics, but enjoy experimenting with other mediums from time to time. I have been a member of the Yealm Art Society for many years and regularly exhibit in their exhibitions and pop-up sales.
I took up painting later in life, joining local painting courses and workshops. Living in Newton Ferrers for many years, I am inspired by the scenes of local river life and my paintings are predominantly of the boats and landscape of the River Yealm Estuary and coastal seascapes. I have been a member of the Yealm Art Society for many years and regularly exhibit in the Easter Exhibition, I have also exhibited in the local RNLI exhibitions.
I have always enjoyed painting and drawing since taking Art ‘A’ level at school. I began painting in watercolour but since joining the Yealm Art Society I have begun to use different mediums including pastels, acrylics and oils. I like to experiment with different subjects and styles but my favourite paintings are of local landscapes.
I live on a farm near Ivybridge but my parents lived in Newton Ferrers for many years,here I came to love painting seascapes, river and moor pictures.
I work mainly in acrylic and oil but enjoy pastel and watercolours, my style is fairly loose working with a pallet knife being my favourite tool.
Since joining the Yealm Art Society I have benefited so much from the help and ideas of other members,giving me the incentive to keep painting.
I took up painting when I retired and have found it very rewarding as well as sometimes frustrating. I enjoy painting with other who help to give me inspiration as well as guidance! I have tried working in most painting mediums and have also worked with mosaics, felting and textiles.
Painting in oils and acrylics has been my hobby for sometime. My work is inspired by wonderful scenery, cloud formations and different light effects both here in Devon and Pembrokeshire. I can attribute my continuing interest to the encouragement of the Yealm Art Society and the workshops I have attended. My work has been exhibited locally and I have accepted several commissions
I am an artist living in Devon surrounded by beautiful countryside and coastline which gives me inspiration for my artwork. I like to paint dramatic and vibrant seascapes with movement. I like the viewer to feel the motion and the intensity of the subject. Another area of my work is to observe and explore nature’s designs and create colouful energised inventive paintings combining abstract emphasis with traditional realism structures of shapes and forms.
I have practiced art since childhood and with the exception of a series of art courses in adulthood, I am mostly self taught. I created pen and ink architectural renderings for different firms before the introduction of computer renderings and did many commissioned works for individual clients. Today I paint mostly with acrylics but also gauche, water colours and pen and ink.
