'3 Media mix' exhibition
Diana , Jill Cooper(textile artist), Caroline Barker (printmaker) 5th exhibition , new work
A long-time resident of the South Hams, I returned to painting with renewed vision and energy exploring an exhilarating and vibrant approach to using oils. My distinctive landscapes and seascapes are contemporary, colourful and full of energy. The rugged form and structure of the Devon coast and countryside are a constant fascination. Natural wonders experienced on visits to my daughter in New Zealand and further travels also evoke powerful responses. I sometimes exhibit with a printmaker and textile artist calling ourselves '3Media Mix'. Since 2008 I have exhibited and sold at Harbour House, Kingsbridge, Greenway National Trust, The Ariel Centre, Totnes, Bistro One, Plymouth, The Loft Studio, Salcombe, The Brownston Gallery, Modbury, Hope Cove Gallery, Birdwood House, Totnes, The First Floor Gallery, Avon Mill and the Rill Estate, Buckfastleigh.
