I studied Industrial Ceramics to gain a B.A. Honours and ran my own ceramics studio for several years.  I’m currently running art courses and teaching at the Centre of England Arts in Hampton in Arden.  My main style has developed over the years when I fell in love with pure watercolours, I then added the use of a soluble pen washed over, then I added the zing of coloured wax crayons. The contrast really conveyed well the feeling of what I wanted, for example the grey November days when the odd few leaves that are left on the dark tree branches look as if they were sprinkled with gold, it’s so inspirational!

In the late 70’s I attended evening Art classes at North Warwickshire College in Nuneaton, this was when I first started making pottery for leisure.  In the late 90’s I studied ceramics and glass up to HND level, under the stewardship of international potter; Jo Connell.  I then continued my studies at Birmingham City University.  On returning to Nuneaton College, I taught Flexi-Access Foundation Pottery. 
My primary discipline is ceramics, specialising in ‘Raku’ fired pieces.  I like to explore other areas of ceramic making and firing techniques.  The options are endless. 

I am a member of Art Alert and Escape Warwickshire.

I was educated at Loughborough Grammar School where I was lucky to be taught by an exceptional art teacher, but since then I have received no further formal art training.  I have always drawn in pencil and this is still my favourite medium.  Since retiring I have widened my horizons and now enjoy pastel, watercolour, acrylic and ink wash, developing ideas in all media and using as many subjects as possible.  I also undertake commissions.  I have successfully exhibited in Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Norfolk and Derbyshire over the past ten years.  I am a member of Art Alert and secretary of the Nuneaton and District Society of Arts.

Lin has always enjoyed expressing herself through words and pictures until life got in the way.  In the1990s she turned her creativity to glass art and painting replicas of mediaeval cathedrals, and to making natural stone jewellery.  She again took up Art in 2006 when forced to give up work due to poor health. She has tried various mediums but fell in love with coloured pencils, oil pastels and more recently gouache.  Lin is a member of UKCPS (UK Coloured Pencil Society) and has assisted with demos at their International Open Exhibition held in 2012 at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery. Lin is a member of and has exhibited with The Wildlife Art Society International. In 2016 Lin was accepted as a member of the Association of Animal Artists. Lin won a first and section trophy for a pastel piece of 2 lions called 'The Happy Couple'.

I’ve always loved drawing, painting and being crafty since childhood, when I would draw visitors who came to the family home.  Later at school the passion continued, but my parents felt Art was not a career and so my vocation took me to nursing, marriage and bringing up a family.  The urge to be creative continued when I went to N. Warks. College and took my HND in Fine Art.  Over the years I have experimented with various materials and enjoy the company of fellow artists who are also doing the same.  The enjoyment and satisfaction of being creative and sharing with others this same love is the most important aspect of my art.

I re-visited my painting hobby 14 years ago as I was approaching retirement and would have more time on my hands.  I subsequently joined an Art class at North Warwickshire College and gained a ‘B’ grade.  I belong to Nuneaton & District Society of Arts and Triumph Art Society. 
I have exhibited several times at the Herbert Art Gallery, Coventry. My favoured mediums are pastel and acrylic.  Painting animal subjects gives me the most satisfaction.

My interest in glass as an art media began as a child, gazing at stained glass windows, finding pebble glass on beaches and a love of glacial landscapes. I studied 3D ceramics & glass HND at Nuneaton Technical College, invested in a kiln, and have been learning how to use glass ever since. My work is inspired by the post impressionist, abstract art and the colour changes of the seasons. I would like to develop my work to include stained glass and mixed media, and hope one day to try my hand at blown glass.

I graduated with a Fine Art degree in 1981 from Coventry (Lanchester) Polytechnic.  Since then I have run art & craft workshops in residential establishments and sold work privately through craft fairs.  Currently I am mostly working in 2D using acrylic although I enjoy working with oils, pastels & watercolour.  I’ve also done a few small 3D pieces – mostly clay.  My work is about capturing a moment, an instant perhaps that can never be repeated.  I try to portray an emotion.  When working on a painting, I like creating challenges, which I then have to solve.  I like to introduce contradiction, ambiguity and a sense of humour.

I am a self-taught artist, inspired by the beauty of the diverse scenery I discover on my walks around the British coast. All my paintings represent special memories of harbours, estuaries and beaches.  I prefer to work in watercolour and pen and ink. I have had three successful exhibitions of my work at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery.

I took up Art as a hobby in 1994 following a heart attack, which enforced my retirement. Nuneaton College was the venue for my studies, where I gained a GCE in Art & Design – much to the amazement of my grandchildren.  I now attend Art classes at the Bedworth art Centre.  I have had successes at the Art Festival over the years, gaining 1st and 2nd awards.  
I am a member of Nuneaton & Bedworth Art Society and Art Alert.  Art has made an absorbing hobby and provided a varied social live.  I enjoy working in pencil, pastel and acrylics.

I have always enjoyed drawing & painting and had a brief spell at Nuneaton School of Art in the Sixties. Family and work took over for years, but since retiring my interest has been rekindled and I love to experiment in different media with any subject that inspires me.
