Silk Painter and Batik Artist
I have always been interested in ‘art and craft’ work which I promoted as a Primary Teacher.
Once retired, I extended my skills by completing accredited courses in watercolour and acrylic painting at Strathclyde University’s Lifelong Learning Classes.
Silk Painting courses opened up the potential of working with this exciting medium and its vibrant colours.
Batik helps deliver a ‘looseness’ of style enriching the dynamic interaction of colour. The real fascination comes when the wax is finally removed to give the satisfaction of seeing the culmination of this multi-stage process.
I offer ‘taster sessions’ in silk painting and workshops for batik and silk fusion.
