" Abstractions"

In my world playing and exploring in colour and texture is far more interesting than trying to force a realistic image onto the canvas.

About Me

My Background

My Dad loved to paint and as a child I remembered how the house smelled of  turpentine and oil paint and I was fascinated watching him.  I always loved those days when I could color and sadly in secondary school an art teacher told me I could not draw.  Discouraged I did not try again until I was in my late 40's.  I started in watercolor and continued until I was rejected by all the local galleries. Then I took some weekend workshops in abstract and found my peace with art.  Abstract allowed me to play and  capture the world my way. Playing with color, shape and texture allow me to interpret the beauty in the world my way. Welcome to my world of abstractions.


My Medium

I started painting in watercolor, and moved into abstracts using acrylic. More recently I have been playing in oil, oil pastels and really love this medium too. My creativity stays fresh if I do not limit myself to what I think I know.

My Inspiration

Nature in all its colors, textures, shapes and light are my biggest inspiration.  Of course other artists and their interpretations are equally  inspiring.
