Informal classes and workshops in painting, drawing, printing and etching over the last ten years have helped Tricia’s change of perspective and ways of seeing, in very large part thanks to The Trenchard Studio group and the beautiful School of Painting at St Ives, Cornwall.
Graphic connection with a sheet of paper, mixing colour and mark making are central to Tricia’s enjoyment of art!
There is undoubtedly magic as well as chemistry and physics at work in making art, coupled with the innate human urge to make connections and communicate by leaving small traces of beauty and memory.
Trained as a nurse and an overseas development coordinator, travel took her to Altai Siberia, Kashmir, West and East Africa, sadly though not with a sketchbook!
She lives in a very small place in an interesting town in Somerset and is involved with community relations.
