Pattern, colour and natural form are the focus for Vivienne’s floral watercolours. Inspiration is sparked by the colours and shapes of flowers, gorgeous fabric, a special jug or vase. The contrast of natural form with geometric pattern is often a strong element in her work. She aims to produce a response in her painting that is fresh and contemporary, not merely a faithful reproduction and she is inspired by the information set out before her to produce a spontaneous reaction. It is an exciting journey which she hopes will help to keep her paintings alive with fresh, vibrant colour.
“In the early 70s I trained in printed textiles at Leicester Polytechnic College. My working career began as a freelance designer of printed carpets for the European and US markets. During this period I began teaching art and design in Further Education on a part-time basis, which then lead to me becoming Head of Department for art and design, working full-time in Further Education for 26 years in total. During my teaching career, I painted and exhibited as time allowed. I began painting professionally in 2005.”
