The Story So Far
Like many, I have always painted, but more seriously since 2007. In 2019 I attended the Newlyn School of Art for one year where I studied a Defining Practice course. From here I realised I needed to find a suitable space to move in all my ‘art stuff’ to. When the Art Studio became available it just felt right to rent it even with the pandemic looming during 2020. The decision paid off as in August 2021 I won the Teignmouth Art Society Abstract Artist Award which was an unexpected delight. The trophy has pride of place in my studio and reminds me that this is all worth it.
What does your average day look like:
A typical day for me is always start with a coffee from The Devon Larder on the corner of Queen Street, a catch up with my neighbours in the other offices nearby, listening to Classical FM whilst I plan my day, write up my art journal of ideas and inspiration and then prep the paints to be splashed about for the next few hours. No interruption from the internet, no emails or phone calls, just the perfect creative environment to thrive in.
