Throughout my artistic career I have enjoyed working across a range of styles and mediums and have always had a great love of colour, hence the title of this show.
This exhibition covers a range of subject matter from Sussex landscapes, gardens and still lifes to paintings inspired by my grandchildren on the Swedish island of Smågö, Västervik. I’m also showing works sparked by the centenary of WW1 and a range of monotypes, a specialised form of printmaking using acetate sheets and oil-based printing inks.
I received a classical training as a painter and printmaker at Camberwell College of Art, London, in the late 60s, working from the model, still lifes and landscapes using a variety of techniques including oil paint and print. I also studied works by the great masters. I paint from my studio in Shoreham and out in the landscape.
