Meet Gill Drew

Working in acrylics and mixed media, I create rich visual textures with layers of mark- making and colour.  I enjoy capturing the light, the atmosphere, and my connection to the subject.

Through my painting I aim to express something of the sensory experience of being out in nature and love to pay attention to the sounds and the movements.

My work is both an emotional response and an attempt to convey a sense of wonder, intrigue and exploration.

My process begins playfully, laying down colours and textures upon which the composition develops. Each piece evolves as paint is layered, sanded and glazed.

I have taught art for many years and still very much love being involved in encouraging others to explore their creativity. This now happens in workshops and art classes in Hampshire.
