Last light of the day

Title: Last light of the day
Description: This is from a photograph of Reculver Towers on the North Kent Coast, taken just before the light of the Sun faded. Standing in the centre of these ruins, I always get a real sense of its past and those who left their souls here. The last picture shows the Towers when they were once part of the medieval church of St Mary. Well worth a visit!

Artist Biography:

In the late 1980’s, I moved from Yorkshire to Canterbury in Kent to complete a combined degree in Primary Teaching and Fine Arts. I never returned to Yorkshire, deciding to stay and teach in Kent. I have long had a love of being on a beach next to the sea, and capturing beautiful sunsets and seascapes. Living near the sea on the East Kent Coast and with a west facing uninterrupted view of an apple orchard, has continued to fuel this obsession. it was after my daughter was born that I suffered from severe depression and it was during this time that I I rekindled my love of Art- producing pastel drawings ( a medium I had previously only used in Life Drawing) using images of sunsets from magazines.
I have continued to teach in Primary schools, but retrained as a SENCO (Special Education Needs Coordinator) which brought with it new challenges and frustrations. Alongside this, I have suffered a number of bouts of ill health and surgery, and art has been my therapy throughout this.
I primarily work in pastels with ink detail, and as you can see from my work, I continue to use both sea and sky as my inspiration.

I now have a Facebook shop where I also sell a few other of my creations! TreetopsART. A donation of all my sales will go to Lewy Body Dementia- a disease so cruelly fought by my own darling Mum, Denise.
