F11Every year during the first week in August Sidmouth hosts an International Folk Festival filling the seaside town with musicians and dancers from all over the world. F11 d1As a local artist with my gallery in Sidmouth I thought I would started this year’s set of naive paintings in readiness for the festival. Here is my first for the season – F11 2I just love these multi-colour dancers bringing such fun to town with their glorious get-ups and painted faces.


Going All Folk Art

I am enjoying taking my folk style forward here in Sidmouth – home of the International Folk Festival!Devx2 2 It is fun to paint in this style – released from the focus of representation and realism.

I am using small cotton canvas boards and acrylic paints to deliver colorful images at accessible prices.
