One of my workshops took place at the St Peters Church in Limpsfield Village. It was a super day and the weather was glorious. The group dynamic was very successful and I had artists painting inside and outside the church. The watercolour painting above is a demonstration I did for my students and it involved large, loose brushstrokes and big washes. By focusing on tonal shapes and edges I tried to capture the atmosphere of this wonderful, historic building without getting too 'bogged down'. I really enjoy painting this way. I use the same approach when I paint in markets and other busy scenes.
I was born in SA during the seventies and enjoyed a colourful childhood. I have always been passionate about painting and drawing and found plenty of stimulating subjects around me. After studying Graphic Design in Durban I worked as a Graphic Artist for various agencies in SA. I finally moved over to the UK in 1997 and have enjoyed many adventures since. My career has been an exciting, versatile one so far and I teach many enthusiastic adults how to paint and draw, as well as demonstrating for art groups in Surrey. I still love to paint outdoors and in my studio. I look forward to many more exciting and rewarding artistic challenges.
