Watercolour, Gouache and Brusho
Retiring to Norfolk in 2015, Gillian originated in the North East, before moving to South Wales, Leeds, Manchester and spending most of her working life in Solihull.
Dabbling a few times with art before retirement, mainly in acrylics, rarely finding the time to spend quality time painting. Her main hobby has been photography, and it was this which kicked off card making around 15 years ago. This extended to using other card making tools such as stamps and die cuts to create cards for friends and family. A hobby she continues to follow, which cross skills into painting and crafting.
Since retirement, Gillian has rekindled her love of painting and craftwork and enjoys learning new techniques, experimenting with alternative media such as collage and llnocuts as well as more conventional watercolour and acrylic. She uses a lot of her photography as inspiration for painting.
