Artist's StatementPainting, for me, is active contemplation. As I walk around in town and fen, I keep my eyes open for an epiphany. Moses was stopped in his tracks by a burning bush; I just get an orange hedge in winter sunshine, or a line of beauty in a farm-track swerve.
I take what I’ve seen back home and stay with it. I use pencil and paper to find the essential lines: I relish the paint, squidging and marking and scratching. During this process the original power of what I saw transfers in my imagination to the painted surface.
I have done various kinds of work: as an English teacher, with older people, in refugee support and children’s work, in caring for my family and now as a psychotherapist. Painting has been my constant.
