I’m a mixed media artist. I live in Cambridge with my husband and 3 daughters, and work from my art studio in our garden. I love the opportunity to paint live and do so regularly at a variety of events.
I love colour and movement, pattern and detail, shapes and lines, working large, using layers and getting messy. My style leans towards abstract expressionism. Action painting and kinesthetic art are definitely an influence. I’m excited by the extravagant dimensions and intimate details that I see in creation – a joyfulness in the very act of creating. I hope to reflect these things in my own work.
I’d describe myself as a song painter. My work mirrors the abstract nature of dance and music, speaking without words. I see painting as ‘singing with colour’. Visceral, visual utterances of shape, hue and marks are my lexicon – a whole heart, mind, body & soul thing. I sometimes paint at an easel but I also work on a much larger scale on the floor, becoming ‘part of the art’ as I work from within the painting.
I am available for weddings, concerts, conferences, festivals and indeed any event where you would like me to add a splash of colour!
I am a member of Cambridge Open Studios and have my own YouTube channel (Flourish and Fly) where I share time-lapse videos of my art process.
