Her style of work is semi abstract with traditional drawings skills underpinning the work. She experiments in her studio with a range of media allowing paints, glazes and inks to float and form patterns. Textures in the form of pastes and gels are added to the work as it progresses. A recent addition is to create images on her iPad and use them for collage work in her semi abstract pictures.
COMING SOON - PRICING WORKSHOP
Pricing is sometimes harder than the making bit as I'm sure all artists and makers will agree. This two hour group workshop will give you a formula to take away and help you price your work to achieve maximum profit. We will also show you how to price your work ready for galleries and what questions they will ask. You will leave with a printed formula and notes. Requires a small mount of homework prior to the workshop. Definitely one to get you thinking!
£15 incl tea/coffee and a printed handout
