JOURNEY - Evacuee 425



Watercolour is my preferred medium during the past decade. I love painting intensely layered and textured watercolours. My work generally has considerable content to achieve emotion and atmosphere. The Dales landscapes provide inspiration but I also draw further inspiration from home and abroad and from architectural, rural and marine scenes. Such is the delight of it all.

I took up photography in my 70s’ and I enjoy producing ‘collage photography’ which suits the creative side of me. I do not use Photoshop or Lightroom but create images from my photographs and often other materials to build contemporary prints. It is indeed an exciting challenge which I hope people will enjoy as much as I do.



Sylvia Too

Sylvia began painting again in 2015 following a 25 year hiatus. Working in Acrylics, her main focus is portraiture and fan art. One of 10 winners of the HBO Game Of Thrones competition, her work was exhibited in London in 2016. She lives in Otley with her partner, son, and cat, and besides painting is an avid needle -felter.
