I am a self taught, established artist. Brought up in Manchester, from the tender age of 5, painting and drawing have fascinated me ever since. I began designing clothes as a teenager as well as creating painted textiles and decorating my family home with hand-printed wallpaper. After achieving a grade ‘A’ in A-Level Art, I divided my time between my paintings and children. My children have now grown up older and I am now a daily painter. Most of my time is devoted to my work consisting of heavy texture and 3D effect; a style unique in its way created using lots of different mediums and applied with a knife.
I want to propose to viewers not just to look, but to touch; because sometimes that is the first thing one does. The viewers feel the Shapes and the flow of ripples of the texture; depending on what the painting subject is; adding to their senses, (See, Touch and Understand).
Whatever I paint, I have to be extremely passionate about the painting process. I need to be wound up by a Subject, Landscape, Flowers, Abstract, anything in order to convey to the viewer, the sense and pleasure that I myself feel when painting.
Ever since the age of 5, drawing, colouring, painting has progressed along with my age. I see Art in my blood. True as the saying goes; ‘The creative urge cannot be suppressed’. I need to get it across. I explore the expression of feelings, thoughts and deep emotions through my artwork, strongly believing in the aiding of a person’s well-being via the expression and colour found in my work; in a world where everyone leads stressful and hectic lives.
We all have different voyages through life, always so busy in our stressful hectic lives that we don’t bother to look around at how much God has given us. Only when something happens to us or loved ones do we stop and think.
Everyone is given one life. Everyone has a brain, the most magnificent machinery. How we use it depends on you. Depression catches up in many ways but is always covered. For our ‘well-being,’ we end up with the G.P, Counselling or even a family member, to ease off pressure by talking about our problems.
Colour plays the most important impact in my work. Colour is very important in our ‘well-being.’ Deep blues and purples can take you into ‘deep calmness,’ a thoughtful response to nature and to capture the essence of there lasting sensations through the heavily textured point, onto canvas where it will be cherished forever.
Life is very precious; nature is all around us, a magazine of never ending pages. The simplest of the flower, a daisy, can put a smile on ones face and the poppy brings memories of the war.
Even myself when I complete a painting, I hang it up on my bedroom wall whilst it dries. I explore the work, not as an artist, but as an individual admirer, the movement and flow of nature in my artwork. This then again is an excellent way of diverting the mind and body from our day to day chores for ones ‘well-being.’ Art work is unique; we all absorb it in our own way.
I hope I can engage viewers in the same way as I do. I love creating a lot of texture; one can feel and see work come to life. I spend hours of my time, applying layer upon layer, until the right thickness is achieved.
I want to show my work to a wide audience as possible, to people who believe and feel the same way as I do. After all, sharing thoughts and emotions is a sense of ‘well-being,’ just as they say Aroma therapy heals; so does Art and colour.
