I was born and grew up on the Wirral Peninsula in Cheshire and went to the Laird School of Art, and then the Liverpool College of Art and Design. At first I went into Graphic Design, but quickly reverted to fine art.

I have taught painting, ceramics and printmaking but for many years concentrated on my own work. I paint in oil, manly with a palette knife and look for shapes and patterns in the landscape, trying to get light and shade and atmosphere in the paintings.

I have had work in many galleries, including Red Rag, Stow on the Wold, The Great Atlantic Gallery Falmouth, The Mall Gallery London and the Royal West Of England Academy Bristol. I now have work in The Harbour Gallery Portscatho Cornwall, the Montpellier Gallery Stratford- on -Avon and The Bluestone Gallery Hay -on- Wye I submit work to the Annual exhibitions of the Society of Women Artists, The Royal Society of Painters in Oil, and the Annual Open exhibition at the R.W.A.

About the gallery

Found in historic Hay on Wye, Bluestone Gallery is a new addition to the famous Book Town. We hope to contribute to the creative mix already here so that Hay gets known for its galleries as well as its bookshops. Owned and run by Guy and Ellie Perkins, Bluestone has recently moved from Devizes where it enjoyed a loyal following for twenty years. Time for change of scene, Guy and Ellie are delighted to be part of this vibrant, friendly and thriving community!
