Teacher / Instructor; Visual Artist: Mixed Media; Certified in Art and Creativity for Healing
I’m a British artist living and working in Minnesota, USA since 2006.
During Covid lockdown, the world went quiet and I retreated to my studio to create. I was surrounded by the portraits I had been painting for a project, but I was experiencing another ‘jolt’. So, I stopped. I got still. I listened to what my own soul was feeling and trying to say. I discovered I needed to be like a child and simply play.
So, I began again . . . again!
I started to play with paint with no expectations or judgements. I was not painting for an audience- just for me. And because I was created to create, I reminded myself that what I was doing in secret was somehow meaningful. Then before I recognized what had happened, a whole new body of intuitive, expressive art was created. And when that happens, it’s time to share!
That’s what I’m on my website and in exhibits. Sharing.
And that’s how the paintings I’m sharing came about.
I’m so happy when someone connects with my art enough to have it in their home or make it part of their life in some other way. Whether it’s an original painting or a print, I want it to give you joyful moments that refresh your soul. I want you to have little moments of ‘ooo’ and ‘ah’ when you see details hiding in plain sight and as you realize that there’s more to explore than at first glance. . . which, after all, is a lot like us, isn’t it?
I hope one of my paintings finds its home with you.
