Sunday 9th October until Sunday 6th November 2016
"I started to paint about 10 years ago when my husband bought me a paint box! I had loved art at school but hadn't picked up a paint brush since as family, career, life, etc. got in the way. So I started a huge learning process and found that I love watercolours. Although I have dabbled in other media, I think the translucency and delicacy of watercolours lends itself to the things I like to paint.
My style is a bit mixed but as I have completed a Diploma with the UK Society of Botanical Artists, I find that this is where my main focus is. However, having completed many precise and exacting botanical works, it is so nice to paint with a loose and sometimes semi-abstract style to, hopefully, achieve a more modern edge!
I am a member of the Birmingham Watercolour Society and also the Birmingham Society of Botanical Artists.
I run two Art Groups here at the Jinney Ring Craft Centre and also teach two groups at Barnt Green."
