I have been painting since 2012 and sold work through my local art society and Holmfirth Art Week. I wanted to expand my knowledge and painting skills and enrolled on the BA (Hons) Painting degree course with the Open College of Arts. The course is challenging me to explore different media and artists as I develop my painting practice.

I enjoy the process of researching a place or a subject and exploring it in a variety of painting media such as acrylics, oils, pastels, and inks, sometimes on wood panels, paper, canvas and linen. The final paintings have often taken twists and turns as I work with the materials on my canvas.

The subject of my paintings is continually developing. I am working on how to express experiences, ideas and what I am learning about our landscape in the UK, in more depth.
