I am a contemporary abstract painter/textile artist living in North West UK in the beautiful landscape of Cumbria. I am inspired by the countryside around me and by my life experiences and I use stitch, collage, resin, inks, oil bars and acrylic paints. I work with collage, stitch, charcoal, acrylics and oil bars and am interested in layers, colour, mark making and texture. I use maps, dress making patterns and networks within my paintings and I will often recognise elements within my paintings when they are finished. Some paintings take months to resolve and go through a roller coaster ride of various stages where they are disliked before something ‘clicks’ and they come out the other side.

    I love your pictures and would like to try the workshop day at the Brewery but I would not call myself an artist! I love medieval illuminated manuscripts, could I do something around these and how? do we get to bring a finished item home with us?

      Hi Carol, the workshop will involve mark making techniques and experiments as a way of helping people to work in an abstract way, have fun with materials and throw ‘rules’ out of the window. You will leave with lots of samples which could be individual pieces of work or just experiments. Then you are free to use some of these techniques at home with the work and materials you are interested in. But it would be fine to bring along any materials that you normally use – inks, drawing materials, paints and papers to use in the workshop. Hope that helps!
