Maureen Laycock  / UK

I returned to my first love of art and textiles in 2010.  My inspiration for paintings comes from local walks in and around Sheffield, Derbyshire and on my travels.  

I enjoy mark-making and the rhythm of movement, layers of paints, textiles and experimentation. I work in acrylics and oils, and also ocasionally in textiles and multimedia. I often scrape into my work, removing a layer or more and using the canvas as a platform for a journey until I am happy with the outcome.

I am fairly obsessed wth trees, hills, water and rocks, which are plentiful in the local countryside.
