Many years ago I was asked….”what would you do if you won the lottery?”
I very quickly said…” I would give up work and go to Art School”
Waiting to win the lottery was taking far too long, so after a great deal of work in a technical and fascinating industry, it was time to pursue my love of the visual arts and go to art school.
I am lucky enough to be a graduate of Camberwell, UAL, with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art – Painting, with electives in drawing and ceramics.
After my degree I went to Goldsmith’s and had a whirlwind post graduate year, earning my PGCE in Art and Design.
I paint for the fluid nature and versatility of the paint, creating and implying and hinting at narratives using the natural world as my stage and players.
Drawing, painting and making ceramics are fundamental to my artistic practice as is encouraging others to draw and be creative.
Especially drawing……I am a huge fan and advocate of THE BIG DRAW (www.TheBigDraw.org) and I was delighted to bring The Big Draw to Fulbourn last year for the very first time in our village.
Drawing and developing our visual literacy is so key to our thinking, expression, communication and inventiveness, it is not to be under-rated.
Looking forward to a busy weekend, here in Fulbourn we have a marvellous art trail, 5 Open Studios and two group exhibitions: The Fulbourn Art Fair 20...
