I have been painting all my life. I am drawn to watercolour for its immediacy and clarity of colour. In recent years I feel I have been able to explore this more through the Experimental Drawing Workshops – Observation to Abstraction – given by Ella Clocksin and have exhibited twice with this group in Oxford (2011-Phoenix Picture House; 2012-Lady Margaret Hall). I also followed courses at Sunningwell School of Art for several years. I aim to capture and convey something of the energy in nature.
