I work and live in Birmingham, UK, with my husband and my dog. I have been painting in my spare time for many years. In this collection of pictures I show some of my more recent work.
My still life paintings mainly focus on interesting shapes and iconic designs of antique objects. I love painting the organic ripples, shapes and movement of material that feature in my work. These paintings evoke elements of nostalgia ; vintage but not from a specific time. The second page is my most up to date paintings, In the garden 1 - 4 from March 2020 during the Lockdown having time at home.
I like working with acrylic paints, they dry fast and you can be bold knowing you can paint over anything you're unhappy with. I like rich bright colours and once I've started a painting I can work quickly and get in the flow.
I painted the image above for Bournville Clarinet Choir of which I am a member. we perform great music and I enjoy playing a part!
