Mixed media / Collage, Painting

Passionate about all things watercolour! Using traditional and experimental techniques to paint flowers, coastal landscapes & textural rusty subjects. Weekly classes and day workshops in Cambridge

I specialise in floral painting, coastal landscapes and textural subjects, often drawing inspration from the botanic gardens in Cambridge, the Norfolk and Suffolk coast and the Island of Mull. I use pure watercolour and use experimental techniques combining watercolours with ink and mix media. I am fascinated by watercolours, their fluidity and the mark making potential achievable by combining them with additives. I’ve been really enjoying exploring their use in textural paintings of rusty objects and peeling paintwork on old boats and doorways.

During my career as an Architect living and workin in Cambridge I developed my interest in watercolour painting which has become my new career. Over the last ten years as a professional artist I have taught hundrers of students in all ages in workshops and art classes in Cambridgeshire.

I really enjoy teaching watercolours to help people learn new skills and improve their techniques. I teach weekly classes on Fridays and Saturday workshops with a variety of themes at St Johns church, Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 8RN. It is a large ight airy venue with a pretty external courtyard garden which we use when having lunch at the day workshops. Beginners and more experienced welcome. Free car park and tea and coffee. Booking is essential.
