Full circle!

I started drawing and painting at the age of 13 yrs in evening classes, in Leominster Herefordshire, and found a subject that I felt confident in. When finishing school I moved onto an Art Foundation course and Shrewsbury, then progressed to a BA (Hons) in Hull, specializing in sculpture. After this, I ventured into the world of ceramics, and learnt to throw, eventually setting up as a potter and selling domestic wares to local outlets and National Trust shops in the Bristol area.
A couple of years later I progressed to completing a PGCE in Art and Design in Birmingham and went into teaching secondary level art.
After a few years of full time teaching in Gloucestershire and then West Sussex, I moved to Hong Kong with my then partner, and had two children. Whilst there I taught English as a home tutor to local children, and had two boys of my own.
On returning to the UK I had a decade of working for an Adventure Travel company working with teenagers in secondary school teams. I eventually took redundancy and accidentally found myself pursing an art career again, helping out as an art technician at my sons school.
I have been thrilled to discover, almost accidentally, the delights of acrylic fluid art and family and friends started to ask for commissions. This eventually led to opening an Etsy store.
I love the immediacy of this technique, it's very much about working in the moment and working with the paint and using it's fluidity to create unique pieces which are truly one offs. You never quite know what's going to happen, and that's keeps it interesting!
