Maker's bio

As self-taught artist living in the Northumberland, I have been painting for over 24 years. Inspired by the surrounding Northeast coastline I enjoy painting seascapes and landscapes in acrylics and watercolour hopefully capturing their atmosphere in different moods through colour. Even though I have a passion for creating landscapes and seascapes I also like to experiment with different mediums and subjects which makes my artwork quite diverse. I also paint in alcohol inks, sometimes adding a little goldleaf metal to enhance the painting, My artwork has been displayed and sold from Art Gallery’s in Newcastle upon Tyne, North Shields and in Spennymoor. There are very little things I enjoy more than listening to my favourite pieces of music while painting. This is so therapeutic; an experience I’d like to share with others and why I decided to host my own relaxing art workshop. A chance to leave the Hustle and bustle of everyday life behind for 2 hours a week and create your own piece of art in a relaxing friendly atmosphere.

Charlotte reviewed: Paint & Create - Children's After School Art Workshop

"Finlay loves going to Josie’s afterschool are club. He has learnt to work in several different media and is really proud of what he’s created so far. Fin says ‘I love going because I get lots of help from Josie in my art which I don’t get at school. I totally recommend doing her classes if you like art and want to get better at it. It is really fun. Five stars. ‘ A great local resource for the kids in Morpeth and an opportunity to have fun with a subject that often gets sidelined in schools. "

Paint & Create responded:

"Thank you so much Charlotte . I really appreciate that you have taken the time to write such a lovely review. Fin is very creative and artistic . I can see how much pleasure Fin gets from creating his own original artwork. It is an absolute pleasure to have him in the workshop. Many thanks Josie :)"
