Line For A Walk started as a personal project to create art for myself and has evolved to where it is today. After many years working to brief in the textile industry, I embraced the idea of painting freely and discovered a renewed passion to create art everyday. I used this freedom to experiment, to evolve my style and capture the essence of living by the sea in my artwork.
I am fascinated by the fluid nature of watercolour and use its unpredictable nature to encapsulate my illustrations of my coastal environment and the characters within it, giving them depth and bringing them to life. Pushing boundaries in this medium, I test myself and the ink by making it very liquid and using it's spontaneity to produce my range of unique works.
I love mid century illustration, particularly the limited colour palettes and clean lines, my swimming ladies are painted to reflect this, juxtaposed with textural, loose backgrounds.
Line For A Walk evolved again in 2016 when I began painting large murals and my style has adapted and changed with the use of acrylics. I have completed several public and private mural commissions in the last 2 years.
