Acrylic Art 

WORK FOR SALE   As an enthusiastic artist and crafts person, it is often a challenge to decide how to use my art time, there are always so many wonderful things to make and create and never enough hours in the day.I have always had an interest in painting and I use acrylics because they dry so quickly and there is instant gratification. 

With the use of layering I enjoying working them until colours shine through and sometimes bring pastels in on top to add more texture or the opposite - a smooth transition of one colour to the next on top of streaky paint work.  My work ranges from black outlines with bright contrasting colours layed over bright colours - to soft pastels tones with no definition and only a hit of form.. The one consistent thing I do is work quickly on large canvas - although I do prefer a completely solid base of wood, so I can put pressure on it for different effects. I am also keen on collage.

Studio 88 has a relaxed and calm atmosphere and students are encouraged to make themselves at home. We are all learning, and there no place for judgement and criticism, only support and encouragement. That doesn't mean we don't challenge you to get the best results. 









I've learned so much from my mistakes I was thinking of making more - just come and have fun!
