My work is often described as contemporary impressionism, I am not sure if that is an accurate description, evocative landscapes might be more appropriate. One thing I do know is that I am becoming obsessed by wild colour! The new collection #Playtime is going to be absolutely full of it!
I have had the most extraordinary week in my studio painting obsessively! Do check out my Instagram feed for the latest updates. If you’re a Pinterest fan you can find images of my latest work there and on my Facebook page. I can’t wait to show you the real things in the spring!
Our lives are a series of stories and colour can change the way they are told. With my playtime palette I aim to take you on a journey and remind you of brighter days and faraway trips with an oasis of wild, luscious colour and vibrancy.
In my early collections I loved working with paints in powerful primary colours.
Irresistible Desire 2 was featured on the cover of Viva Lewes in 2007
In collections that followed such as Stories Without Words , Adventure and Joy the colours were quieter and although I love the simple beauty in natural, muted colours it was wonderful to work with electrifying, powerful primary colours again for my Passion collection.
Dancing with colour in my last collection was so thrilling recklessly painting with shocking pinks and bold blues.
I feel so incredibly inspired at the moment, painting with such gorgeous colours is definitely making me smile and I hope it will make you all smile too! I have made a Pinterest Board called ‘Playing With Colour’ packed full of all the wild colours of the rainbow that are inspiring Playtime!
So important not to let January feel grey!
