Trish attended The Inchbald School of Design London in the 1970's, after which she married and went to live abroad. She became a member of the viewing staff at Phillips Auctioneers in Chester in the 90's. The coast and countryside where she now lives in Devon, along with those memories of colour and sound from living abroad, all play an important part in how she uses colour. Her paintings, which tend to evolve and emerge from the canvass in a semi abstracted way are born about by her feelings and reaction to a place and are therefore not representational.
Trish recently did a 4 day sculptural course at The Sculpture School in Devon www.thesculptureschool.co.uk which she thoroughly enjoyed and now intends to experiment more using clay whilst still painting and playing in the studio!
"I attend Life Drawing workshops locally and study at the Robin Child Art Research Studio under the tutelage of Robin Child. I find the work of such artists as Joan Eardley, Donald Hamilton Fraser, Bruce Onobrakpeya, Peter Lanyon and Richard Diebenkorn hugely inspirational and I also spend happy hours leafing through old exhibition catalogues and books!"
