For some years I combined teaching with working on landscapes and seascapes using soft pastels, based largely on views of the Borders and North Northumberland, and exhibiting and promoting my work at local galleries and art fairs.
Since retiring, and wanting to experience and experiment with other environments and media, I’ve spent four months in Ullapool at Bridge House School of Art, and am a member of the current Professional Development group at Paintbox School of Art in Cockenzie. Both of these have been challenging, but exciting and very rewarding.
My work recently has included acrylic and mixed-media painting, building up layers on a textured and often colourful surface, and while I continue to enjoy using pastels it is often in combination with other media. My interest in the ever-changing effects of light and weather on the colours and atmosphere of the landscape remains the same though, and I combine time in the studio with getting outside to enjoy and be continually inspired by the landscapes around me.
