BA(Hons) Fine Art (1st)
After several years teaching contemporary embroidery and surface design of fabric, I returned to college and completed a degree in Fine Art. Since graduating I have concentrated on painting using acrylics and oils.
I paint to explore colour and texture through the process of building up and scraping back layers of paint. My practice reflects this interest in the processes and materials I use, and I often incorporate marble dust, plaster and cold wax medium into the layers.
Sometimes the ideas are developed as abstract compositions, though recent work has been more semi-figurative and focused on the local coast and estuary landscape.Sue Chipchase
