CHRISSIE EVERARD Expressive Artist

Whatever art one pursues

it is the connection with the subject, the observation of interactions and the curiosity of making connections that create something above the ordinary state of life.

Lockdown year changed my creative process and I tightened myself into a ball so coming out of that year will be interesting.

I spent 2020 online (out of necessity) developing my oil techniques and knowledge with the Norfolk Painting School. The many ideas and processes I will continue to use especially the mixed media in oil.

2021 I'm looking to re-engage looseness and expressive landscapes and I've gone back to the master of expressive landscapes with Lewis Noble based in Derbyshire. I first took a workshop with Lewis many years ago and learnt so much about expressing the landscape. I'm in the final week of 3 going back to basics for where and how to find inspiration, how to mark it out and how to develop it back in the studio. It's been brilliant being amongst such 'loose' company.

And so I've dug out some loose work from when I first went to Lewis to remind myself I was and hopefully still am a loose woman.
