Philippa paints from her shed/garden studio? outside Morpeth. She has always had an interest in all things arty and creative, and latterly worked as an arts project manager for Creative Partnerships, a government initiative to encourage creative teaching and learning in schools. Now, with time on her hands, she is addicted to painting, working mainly in oils and acrylic.
Inspired by the work of the Impressionists, she loves the use of colour by the contemporary Scottish artist Julie Dumbarton. She has gained confidence and learned a great deal from her online courses. Philippa loves conveying the movement of animals and the changing light of the countryside. She is still working on the problem of when to actually stop painting.
Her oil painting of Morpeth Woods is exhibited at Woodhorn Museum until 22 April 2019, and she was a winner of Northumberland County Council’s recent Holocaust Memorial art competition
